Drug Reaction with Eosinophilia And Systemic Symptom Syndrome [DRESS] is a hypersensitivity drug reaction, most frequently associated with antiepileptic drugs (AEDs), characterized by skin rash, fever, pharyngitis, lymphadenopathy, and visceral organ involvement, typically presenting within 8 weeks of initiation of therapy. Management of DRESS syndrome involves prompt withdrawal of the offending drug and use of systemic corticosteroids.
