Adverse drug reactions are a common hazard of modern pharmacotherapy; fixed drug eruption (FDE) is a distinctive cutaneous/mucosal drug reaction that characteristically recurs in the same site with each exposure to the offending drug. Commonly, FDE presents as an isolated patch or plaque which heals with hyperpigmentation, however, occasionally multiple skin lesions may be present; when it is called generalized or multifocal FDE. Although many drugs are known to cause FDE; newer culprit drugs are still being reported. Here, we report the first case of albendazole-induced generalized multifocal FDE from India.
