Toxic epidermal necrolysis and Stevens-Johnson syndrome are potentially life-threatening skin disorders. We report that a 3-month-old infant, a patient with toxic epidermal necrolysis, who in addition to a standard resuscitation protocol for burns received treatment with Suprathel (PolyMedics Innovations GmbH, Filderstadt, Germany) and fatty gauze as topical wound dressings in the form of a whole body cover with complete recovery. This is the first case report of Suprathel being used successfully in a baby with toxic epidermal necrolysis.
