Nonpigmenting solitary fixed drug eruption after skin testing and intra-articular injection of triamcinolone acetonide.

BACKGROUND: Although several medications have been reported to cause fixed drug eruption (FDE) reactions, triamcinolone acetonide has not been previously described as an offending agent. OBJECTIVE: To emphasize both an unprecedented causative agent and the extraordinary development of a FDE, we describe this response in a 42-year-old female patient. METHODS: Because her history included a questionable reaction to corticosteroid preparations, prick and intradermal testing with triamcinolone acetonide was done to determine whether she could safely receive a triamcinolone acetonide injection. RESULTS: Both skin test procedures and the intra-articular administration of triamcinolone acetonide caused FDEs on her right retroauricular area. CONCLUSIONS: Because any drug may induce a FDE by any administration route, physicians should be aware of this delayed skin reaction when skin testing drugs.[1]
