Acute generalized exanthematous pustulo-sis is a rare disorder characterized by an acute onset of generalized, nonfollicular, pustular eruption associated with fever. It is usually drug-induced and is uncommon in children. We report a 12-year-old girl with acute generalized exanthematous pustulosis induced by oral ketoconazole. To our knowledge, in spite of its relatively frequent use, acute generalized exanthematous pustulosis due to ketoconazole has not been previously reported.
