Özet

Fixed drug eruption (FDE) is an adverse effect observed with various drugs such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and various antibiotics. Acemetacin, a prodrug of indomethacin, is an NSAID licensed for use in rheumatic disease and other musculoskeletal disorders. We present a case of acemetacin-induced FDE in a 49-year-old woman. To the best of our knowledge, this is the second case report detailing clinical and histopathological findings of a patient with FDE caused by acemetacin.
