Abstract

Fixed drug eruptions (FDE) are common cutaneous adverse drug reactions, commonly caused by antibiotics and analgesics. Flupirtine, a selective potassium channel opener is non-opoid, non- NSAID analgesic used for the treatment for musculoskeletal pain. Of all the mentioned side effects of flupirtine in literature, fixed drug eruption is absent. Here, we report a case of 55-year-old female of FDE due to flupirtine.
