It is defined as a same-site recurrence with exposure to a particular medication Generalised bullous fixed drug eruption is a rare variant of fixed drug eruptions and may be confused with Steven Johnson syndrome/toxic epidermal necrolysis. Various clinical and histopathological differences can guide the clinician to the right diagnosis Bullous fixed drug eruption (BFDE) is a rare and particular adverse drug reaction characterized by localized or generalized blisters and erosions, which can be confused with Stevens-Johnson syndrome, toxic epidermal necrolysis, major erythema multiforme and autoimmune bullous dermatosis

It is an eruption made of one or few centimetric lesions, relapsing in the same area and leaving residual pigmentation. The bullous forms of fixed pigmented erythema are rare but can be serious in case of generalized forms Fixed drug eruption (FDE) is a type of drug reaction characterized by localized erythema, hyperpigmentation, and bullous at the same site (s), generally observed following every intake of a causative drug. Delayed-type cellular hypersensitivity (Type IVC) is considered to play a role in FDE etiology Fixed Drug Eruption: Bullous Form PAOLO LISI, MD LUCA STINGENI, MD Cutaneous drug eruptions are very common, but their clinical picture is usually unspecific, mimicking many dermatoses.

FDEs usually occur as a single, sharply demarcated, round erythematous patch or plaque, occasionally with localized bullae Bullous fixed drug eruption (FDE) is a severe reaction due to drug intake and requires specific management in dermatology. The sites of predilection are the lips, trunk, genitalia, and perineal area

Fixed drug eruption (FDE) is a distinctive type of cutaneous drug reaction that characteristically recurs in the same locations upon reexposure to the offending drug. Acute FDE usually presents with a single or a small number of dusky red or violaceous plaques that resolve leaving postinflammatory hyperpigmentation ( picture 1A-C ) Fixed drug eruption (FDE) is a drug reaction characterized by one or multiple erythematous lesions that recurs in a fixed site after taking the causative drug. 1 It can be associated with blister formation defining the bullous FDE (BFDE).

The results of patch testing, attempts to demonstrate the causative agent in affected skin, and. Detailed history revealed her oral loxoprofen use for migraine headaches preceding rash development. Although a patch test was negative, inadvertent ingestion of the drug by the patient reproduced the rash within a few hours, thereby establishing the diagnosis of loxoprofen‐induced bullous fixed drug eruption Key words: drug; ﬁxed drug eruption; generalized bullous. INTRODUCTION Fixed drug eruption (FDE) is a type IV hypersen-sitivity reaction characterized by recurrence of le-sions at identical sites with each exposure to the offending medication. After morbilliform exan-thems, FDE is the most common cutaneous drug These observations suggest that widespread bullous fixed drug eruption may portend a more favorable prognosis than TEN, thus stressing the potential importance of distinguishing the two diseases. A review of fixed drug eruption and possible means of differentiating the widespread bullous form from TEN are discussed

Abstract. Fixed drug eruption (FDE) is a distinctive drug reaction characterized by oval dusky macules/patches which develop soon after medication exposure and will recur in the same anatomical site with drug re-exposure The overlapping clinical features of fixed drug eruption (FDE), Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) and toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN) make differentiation between them difficult, especially if FDE is multifocal and extensive. We present a case of multifocal bullous FDE mimicking SJS Skinmed. 2021 Apr 1;19(2):155-156. eCollection 2021.NO ABSTRACTPMID:33938442.. ABSTRACT: This paper is written to heighten awareness of the presence of the most severe form of fixed drug eruption. Two patients with a widespread bullous form of fixed drug eruption (FDE) were initially given the diagnosis of toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN). Both gave a history of a previous widespread eruption from the responsible drug, each had biopsies consistent with fixed drug.
