Stevens Johnson syndrome (SJS), a life threatening mucocutaneous disease can present with many variations and rapidly worsen in a short period of time. Various etiologies are associated with these conditions, with adverse drug reaction being the most common. While the reaction itself is self-limited, little is known about the frequency and risk factors associated with long term SJS sequelae. Presenting a case of a 40 years old male patient who presented to our dental OPD with the chief complaint of burning sensation in the mouth with complete loss of eyesight, all these resultant due to treatment of Stevens Johnson Syndrome. Therapeutic management was done after proper investigations. This case emphasizes the importance of recognition of long term sequelae of Stevens Johnson syndrome as this is a rare but serious condition that must be diagnosed and treated appropriately. Clinicians should be aware of the potential for long term complications among Stevens Johnson survivors.
