Gabapentin usually has a good safety profile with adequate tolerance. The incidence of adverse reactions in skin, hair and mucosa due to gabapentin is low. Here, we present a case of lichenoid photosensitive eruption due to application of gabapentin in exposed areas.
A lichenoid eruption with skin lesions that are widespread distributed requires a drug history as well as stopping the consumption of the drug in question. Patch test and/or phototest confirm the diagnosis.
