Stevens–Johnson syndrome (SJS) is a life-threatening condition with severe mucocutaneous reaction in response to an offending medication. We report a case of SJS complicated with pneumomediastinum and cerebral sinus venous thrombosis in a girl. These two complications occurring simultaneously in a pediatric patient with SJS are hitherto unreported. Laboratory workup pointed underlying connective tissue disease in her. She received supportive care along with steroids, antimicrobials, and anticoagulant under supervision of a multidisciplinary team. She recovered well at discharge and is on follow-up. Clinical vigilance identifies rare but important complications of SJS early, mitigating severe morbidity and mortality.
