Abstract

Of 68 children treated with lamotrigine, a new antiepileptic medication, five developed a rash. One child developed Stevens-Johnson syndrome on lamotrigine monotherapy. Of the five patients with the rash, three were admitted to the hospital (two to the intensive care unit). All recovered completely, but one child had a recurrence of the rash within 30 minutes of reexposure to lamotrigine after 6 months.
