Fixed drug eruption (FDE) is a common cutaneous drug adverse effect characterized by recurrent, sharply demarcated, red to livid maculae that evolve into plaque or bullae and erosions at the same skin or mucosal site after every intake of the causative drug.1,2 Common locations are the lips, oral mucosa, hands, genitals, and perianal area.2 We report a genital FDE caused by the aromatic anticonvulsant oxcarbazepine.
