82 Year Old Awarded $6 Million in SJS Lawsuit

This is a settlement for the SJS, Stevens Johnson Syndrome lawsuit.

A jury in Pasadena, California has awarded over $6 million to an 82 year-old Chinese female immigrant who suffered Stevens-Johnson Syndrome/Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis (SJS/TENS) after being prescribed Allopurinol for allegedly having gout. The woman reportedly maintained that she did not have gout but took the drug anyway which resulted in her developing SJS.

Prior to the injury, the woman had been quite healthy and active. As a result of the significant injuries due to the disease, she now depends on others for her activities of daily living.

The verdict is a record in California Courts for an SJS/TEN case.
