Dapsone is a potent antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory compound, which is mainly used in the treatment of leprosy, neutrophilic dermatoses and a variety of blistering skin diseases. It is known to cause a severe adverse drug reaction presenting with fever, rash and multiorgan involvement known as Dapsone Hypersensitivity Syndrome (DHS). Here we report a case of near fatal fever, rash, and hepatitis secondary to dapsone.
