The quote below is where I found this info. I've been searching the CDC for info to back it up. There is none as far as I can tell.

I've sent this non-profit org. an email asking how they came up with their stats.

Sorry about misleading info.

We started the Stevens Johnson Syndrome Foundation - Julie Foundation for Allergic Drug Reactions, a nonprofit organization to provide information that we struggled so hard to find. Adverse Drug Reactions are the 4th leading cause of death in the United States, yet less the 1% of these reactions are reported to the FDA. This is required by Federal law, therefore keeping the stigma RARE associated with SJS and TEN. We are also working on medical research into SJS/TEN.
