Toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN) is a cutaneous, mostly drug-induced reaction pattern characterized by a widespread necrosis and exfoliation of epidermis, involving more than 30% of the body surface area. Photo-induced Stevens-Johnson syndrome and erythema multiforme, which belong to the same spectrum of TEN, have been described before. However, there is only one case of TEN limited to sun-exposed areas, which was caused by clobazam. In this report a second case of TEN because of naproxen, with lesions showing clear-cut borders on sun-exposed body areas resembling a sun-burn reaction, is presented.
