Abstract: Objective: To determine whether ocular complications of Stevens-Johnson syndrome(SJS) and toxic epidermal necrolysis(TEN) correlate with SCORTEN scores. Methods: Clinical data were collected from 30 inpatients of TEN and SJS with ocular lesions from our hospital during the past 10 years. The distributions of mild, moderate and severe ocular involvement and their relationships with the SCORTEN scores were analyzed. Results: The ocular involvements in mild, moderate and severe TEN and SJS accounted for 55.5%, 30.5% and 16.6%, respectively. Mild TEN and SJS were mainly manifested as ocular involvement. There were no significant differences among three groups(P=0.869). SCORTEN scores in three groups were 2.00±1.45, 2.63±1.74 and 2.83±1.47, respectively. Neither the incidence nor SCORTEN scores varied significantly among three groups(P=0.869 for incidence, P=0.393 for SCORTEN scores). Conclusion: The severity of ocular involvement in patients with SJS and TEN is not associated with the SCORTEN scores.
