Toxic epidermal necrolysis is a cutaneous disorder with high morbidity and mortality. Esophageal stricture has rarely been reported following recovery from this abnormality. A case is presented demonstrating the occurrence of an esophageal stricture following successful therapy. New methods of treatment are changing the mortality and morbidity such that esophageal stricture will be observed more frequently.
