Stephen Johnson syndrome is a severe skin reaction that can occur as a rare side effect of certain medications, including clindamycin. It is characterized by a painful rash that spreads and blisters, often affecting the mucous membranes as well. The condition can be life-threatening and requires immediate medical attention. Hospice care is provided for patients with terminal illnesses and focuses on providing comfort and support rather than curative treatment.
