Certain epidermicx factors are associated with increased risk of TEN. The Nikolsky sign a separation of the necrolisis epidermica toxica dermis from the basal layer upon gentle lateral pressure and the Asboe-Hansen sign a lateral extension of bullae with pressure are also helpful diagnostic signs found in patients necrolisis epidermica toxica TEN. The diagnosis of TEN is based on both clinical and histologic findings. Epidermal necrosis found on histology is sensitive but not specific finding for TEN.

Inhibition of toxic epidermal necrolysis by blockade of CD95 with human intravenous immunoglobulin. These data strongly support the hypothesis that serum from TEN-patients mediates keratinocyte apoptosis, through interaction between Fas and sFas-Ligand.
