Stevens-Johnson syndrome is an infrequent condition affecting the skin and mucous membranes, it involves cutaneous detachment with high mortality without adequate treatment. We present the case of a 40-year-old male with a history of epilepsy treated with valproic acid and lamotrigine, previously diagnosed with dengue. Evaluation showed erythematous blisters on skin and mucosa with bleeding and desquamation, covering 10% of the body surface. The patient progressed favorably with the medical care received. Stevens-Johnson syndrome should be studied in association with arboviral diseases.
