A 70 year old man presented with systemic signs of toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN) following consumption of diclofenac tablets for a prodromal illness a week back. Ophthalmic evaluation showed no perception of light in both eyes along with lid edema, total corneal sloughing, and pus-filled anterior chamber. An amniotic membrane transplant was planned but within a few hours, both eyes developed panophthalmitis with restricted extraocular movements and mild proptosis and had to be eviscerated. This is perhaps the first case showing such devastating sequelae of TEN.
