HSS/ DRESS can be induced by a number of drugs known to be related to SJS and TEN, such as aromatic anticonvulsants and allopurinol, but also other medications such as dapsone and minocycline.

These findings suggest a general predominance of CD8+ Tc1 effector cells in CHS and, moreover, the prevention of CHS to weak contact sensitizers by CD4+ MHC class II-independent cells with regulatory function (fig. 4). It will be interesting to find out if these cells are CD4+ i NKT cells which have been shown to collaborate with Treg cells [56].
