Recall Dermatitis to Metronidazole.

J Cutan Med Surg. 2015 Mar 13;

Authors: Mussani F, Skotnicki S

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Recall dermatitis is an uncommon entity that has been noted with patch testing, repeat exposures to a medication or allergen, and the concurrent use of ultraviolet radiation and certain medications. Recall dermatitis from primary cutaneous exposure and subsequent oral exposure are rare, and the etiology remains unknown.
CONCLUSION: We report a case of recall dermatitis with a drug eruption secondary to metronidazole. Therapy with this medication was initially topical for rosacea and subsequently oral for a gastrointestinal infection. This case draws attention to the use of metronidazole and the risk of recall dermatitis.
