Hajar Imtihani, Vika Fintaru, Jeffrey Giantoro, Niken Indrastuti and Fajar Waskito

Fixed Drug Eruption (FDE) is a common cutaneous adverse drug reaction. It is characterized by recurrent lesion in the same anatomical area followed by drug rechallenge.

Piroxicam is widely used in this region for various symptoms of joint pain. We report a piroxicam-induced FDE case in this article.
