Fluconazole uncommonly causes Stevens-Johnson syndrome. A young Indian man who developed this adverse effect after his second dose of fluconazole is described. The characteristics of previously reported individuals with fluconazole-associated Stevens-Johnson syndrome and toxic epidermal necrolysis are also summarized: three out of five of the patients were immunocompromised, five out of five were hospitalized, and all had complete resolution of this drug-induced condition.
