To the Editor.—  The recent publication by Wilkin and Kirkendall entitled "Pityriasis Rosea—like Rash From Captopril" in the March 1982 Archives (118:186-187) was a worthwhile addition to the dermatologic literature. The authors summarized "pityriasis rosea—like" drug eruptions and stated that "Eight pharmacologic agents have been incriminated in the genesis of a pityriasis rosea—like eruption...." It is unfortunate that the authors failed to include metronidazole, for metronidazole has been reported in this journal as a cause of a pityriasis rosea—like drug eruption.1
