Abstract

Fixed drug eruption (FDE) is a cutaneous adverse drug reaction characterized by recurrence of lesions at the same sites each time a specific drug is taken. Oral mucosal involvement is rare. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are one of the most common offending drug groups in FDE; however, selective cyclooxygenase-2 inhibitors, such as etoricoxib, are rarely implicated. We present a case of oral mucosal and cutaneous FDE induced by etoricoxib that, to the best of our knowledge, is the first reported case of this nature. We describe the diagnostic challenges and review the pertinent literature. The value of drug provocation testing and patch testing in FDE is also discussed.
