Rita Vipul Vora, Malay J Mehta, Nilofar G Diwan, Alpa P Gor, Bharat M Gajjar.

Fluconazole is commonly used in treatment of candidiasis and dermatophyte infections. Fluconazole-induced fixed drug eruption (FDE) is one of the rare adverse cutaneous drug reactions reported in literature. We report a case of a 23-year-old man who developed FDE after intake of fluconazole, which resolved after the drug was discontinued. Thus, for safe use of medicines, continued reporting of such rare adverse effects of drugs is required.

Key words: Fluconazole; Adverse Cutaneous Drug Reaction; Fixed Drug Eruption
