The victim died less than a month after receiving the Pfizer-produced drugs Dilantin® and Flagyl. Dilantin® is an anti-seizure drug and Flagyl is an anti-fungal. Shortly after the administration of the drugs, the patient developed a drug-induced condition known as TEN or toxic epidermal necrolysis. It causes a severe rash and skin sloughing, often followed by infections, blindness or death.
A study compiled by 15 burn centers in the U.S. revealed that more than 20% of TEN cases are believed to be caused by Dilantin® use, with deaths reported in approximately 1 of every 4 cases. Dilantin® is one of the most commonly prescribed anti-seizure drugs in the U.S.
