Abstract

ZINGELA, Z; BRONKHORST, A; QWESHA, W M  and  MAGIGABA, B P. Fatal nevirapine-induced Stevens-Johnson syndrome with HIV-associated mania. South. Afr. j. HIV med. (Online) [online]. 2014, vol.15, n.2, pp. 65-66. ISSN 1608-9693.

Mania with psychotic features is one of the common presenting clusters of psychiatric symptoms in HIV-infected patients. Commonly, patients with HIV-associated mania receive antiretroviral treatment, mood stabilisers and antipsychotics. This case of Stevens-Johnson syndrome highlights the dilemmas and complications that may arise when prescribing multiple medications in HIV-associated psychiatric disorders.
