Acute generalized exanthematous pustulosis (AGEP) is mostly caused by drugs. The combination of high fever, leucocytosis and pustules is often misinterpreted as acute infectious disease. We report a case of AGEP caused by acetazolamide, a diuretic agent, rarely incriminate in adverse drug reactions.
Keywords: Pustulosis, exanthematous, acute generalized, acetazolamide.
