A patient was admitted with Stevens–Johnson syndrome (SJS) and found to have ocular manifestations including eyelid edema, conjunctival hyperemia, and worsening pseudomembranes which threatened his vision. He was referred to a corneal specialist and successfully treated with topical therapy and amniotic membrane grafts. This case is important because while ocular manifestations of SJS are common, there is a lack of awareness of its prevalence and available treatment modalities. Rapid diagnosis and initiation of treatment is crucial to avoid devastating and permanent ocular complications. The following core competencies are addressed in this article: Patient care, Medical knowledge, and System-based practice.
