Acute generalized exanthematous pustulosis (AGEP) is most commonly associated with drug hypersensitivity.1 Infections are an uncommon cause, and most known infectious causes have been viral.2 We know of only a single case of AGEP associated with Chlamydia pneumoniae infection.3 Herein, we report a case of AGEP in an adult following asymptomatic Mycoplasma pneumoniae infection.
