Abstract

Studies on serum protein fractions of 4 patients with toxic epidermal necrolysis revealed that 3 of them had no prealbumin fraction and the 4th had a decreased amount of it. All patients showed a distinct increase of alpha1 anti trypsin, a less distinct rise of coeruloplasmin, beta1 C globulin, IgG globulin and a decrease in transferrin. Since the 3 patients lacking the prealbumin fraction died and the one showing only a decrease of its level recovered, tentative conclusions are drawn in regard to the connection between prealbumin deficiency and prognosis.
