Fixed drug eruptions in children: a series of 23 cases with provocative tests.

Abstract

Fixed eruptions are unusual in children. The classical type is easy to recognize, the generalized bullous variety is however often misdiagnosed. In the present study, 23 children with fixed eruptions were studied; of these, 8 had the generalized bullous type. Provocation tests were done in each case to identify the causative drugs. Acetylsalicylic acid (39%) was the commonest drug incriminated. The patients responded well to systemic steroids.
