PubMed RSS Feed - -Papulopustular rosacea during nivolumab therapy of metastatic squamous cell esophageal carcinoma


Recommended Posts

Dermatol Online J. 2021 Sep 15;27(9). doi: 10.5070/D327955140.


We present a 76-year old man who developed papulopustular rosacea after receiving nivolumab treatment for his esophageal carcinoma, metastatic to the lungs. Nivolumab is an emerging cancer therapy whose immune-related adverse events are still not fully recognized and likely underreported. The treatment has been reported to cause a myriad of cutaneous immune-related adverse events. However, nivolumab-induced-papulopustular rosacea has been scarcely reported. Thus, this case presents a clinically important finding that physicians should be aware of when seeing patients on nivolumab therapy.
