necrolysis

Necrosis and loosening of tissue. [necro- + G. lysis, loosening]
- toxic epidermal n. (TEN) a syndrome in which a large portion of the skin becomes intensely erythematous with epidermal necrosis, and peels off in the manner of a second-degree burn, often simultaneous with the formation of flaccid bullae, resulting from drug sensitivity or of unknown cause; the level of separation is subepidermal, unlike staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome in which there is subcorneal change. SYN: Lyell syndrome.
