Abstract: This case report demonstrates the otologic complications of Stevens-Johnson Syndrome and Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis (SJS/TEN). A five year-old male was admitted to the burn unit with the diagnosis of SJS/TEN believed secondary to acetaminophen use. After resolution of the acute phase, the patient was left with a severe auricular deformity with scarring and complete occlusion of the right external auditory canal (EAC). The patient underwent meatoplasty, canaloplasty, and tympanoplasty with subsequent placement of a molded stent in order to maintain patency of his EAC. Four years later, the patient has a patent right EAC with adequate hearing.
