I am currently conducting an assignment (therefore this does not relate to my past history) and I am wondering if there has been any link found between patients who have toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN) and diabetes mellitus?

The patient I am studying is a 35 year old aboriginal male with signs of anorexia, dehydration and has been tested HIV positive, which is where my second question comes from. Due to the patient being HIV positive could that increase the possibilities of TEN from occurring?

The patient also shows high creatinine and uric acid levels as well as dehydration, weight loss, malaise and erythematous maculopapular rash.

Thank you
