Abstract

Fixed drug eruption is a heterogeneous pattern of cutaneous reaction to certain drugs. Different morphological patterns of fixed drug eruption can occur. We describe a new morphology of fixed drug eruption showing a reticulated pattern as a result of ingestion of mefenamic acid and discuss the possible mechanism underlying such an appearance.
