DRESS syndrome with Plasmapheresis


This case reports describes a 15-year-old girl, presenting with unusual behavior, dysphasia and emotional liability. She was diagnosed with autoimmune encephalitis and subsequently developed drug reaction with eosinophilia and systemic symptoms (DRESS) syndrome, a medication-induced adverse reaction with a significant mortality rate. The exact trigger of this patient’s DRESS syndrome remains unknown but is thought to be as a result of exposure to ceftriaxone, omeprazole or acyclovir.  She was treated with plasmapheresis because she did not respond to either high-dose steroids or intravenous immunoglobulins; this successfully treated her autoimmune encephalitis and DRESS syndrome. The author suggests that plasmapheresis can be a safe and effective treatment within the context of other autoimmune conditions, such as DRESS syndrome.
