Terbinafine-induced acute generalized exanthematous pustulosis (AGEP) responsive to high dose intravenous corticosteroid.Dermatol Online J. 2009 Sep 15; 15(9):8.DO
Acute generalized exanthematous pustulosis (AGEP) is a febrile pustular drug eruption. Terbinafine, an allylamine fungicidial agent, is the most common anti-mycotic associated with AGEP. Here, we report a case of terbinafine-induced AGEP that was recalcitrant to oral corticosteroid but responsive to high-dose intravenous corticosteroid.
