Abstract

Fixed drug eruptions (FDE) comprise 10 percent of all adverse cutaneous drug reactions and generalized bullous fixed drug eruptions (GBFDE) are a rare subset of FDEs. We present a patient with severe GBFDE caused by ibuprofen successfully treated with cyclosporine. Further work is needed to determine if cyclosporine can be an effective therapy for GBFDE.
