Answer

The estimated mortality associated with TEN varies widely in different reports, from 10-70%. Outcome depends in part on the quality of care and the rapidity with which treatment is initiated.

The re-epitheliazation period lasts between 1 and 3 weeks, depending on the extent and severity of the clinical picture. [28]
