A case series on fixed drug eruptions
Metadata[+] Show full item record
A 60 year old male truck driver with a history of recurrent skin boils presented with painful lesions on the glans penis that started a few days prior. A week ago he was treated with co-trimoxazole for skin abscesses on the left leg. The penile lesions were noted as vesicular eruptions that eventually coalesced and there was absence of discharge, scrotal involvement, or lymphadenopathy. He reported a similar episode one year ago following a course of co-trimoxazole for skin abscesses.
