Acute generalized exanthematic pustulosis (AGEP) is characterized by a generalized rash and sterile disseminated, sometimes coalescing subcorneal pustules. It occurs in body flexures such as the inguinal folds and intertriginous areas. The acute onset of disease is accompanied by malaise, fever > 38 degrees C and peripheral granulocytosis. We report on a female patient who according to the criteria of AGEP was diagnosed as having acute localized exanthematic pustulosis (ALEP) on the face.
