Stevens-Johnson Syndrome: A personal story

In this podcast episode, originally from the Outbreak News This Week Radio Show in Mar. 2017, I look at the rare condition, usually brought on by medications or infections, Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) with a person that actually went through this painful immune-complex–mediated hypersensitivity complex.

Donna Rushing of Tampa was diagnosed with SJS one year ago and talks about the beginnings of the syndrome, symptoms, diagnosis, the treatment and her long recovery.
