Acute generalized exanthematous pustulosis (AGEP) is an uncommon severe cutaneous reaction, which most commonly occurs after initiation of treatment with medications such as antibiotics, and less frequently in the setting of other triggers. Cases of acute localized exanthematous pustulosis (ALEP) have been recently reported in association with multiple medications.1,2 Here, we present a case of acute photodistributed exanthematous pustulosis (APEP) in the setting of liraglutide treatment.
