Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis (TEN) is an idiosyncratic reaction to some drugs, which is rarely seen in the paediatric population. Although plasmapheresis has been used in the management of such cases, as seen in various case reports, no standard guidelines have been established till date. We report here, an 8yr old boy who presented to us with severe TEN, who was successfully treated with plasmapheresis as a primary modality of treatment.
