J Drugs Dermatol. 2015 Jun 1;14(6):628-630 Authors: Hu L, Alexander C, Velez NF, Yang C, Canales AL, Liu S, Vleugels RA Abstract Topical tacrolimus has been observed to induce granulomatous rosacea (GR) in prior case reports and series. In most cases, patients recover fully after withdrawing tacrolimus and initiating doxycycline or minocycline. Herein, we describe a case of severe GR, which required further therapy. Clinicians should be aware of this rare complication because of the frequent use of topical tacrolimus. <br /><br /> <em>J Drugs Dermatol. 2015;14(6):628-630.</em>.PMID: 26091390 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26091390?dopt=Abstract = URL to article Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
