We report a case of urticaria and fixed drug eruption (FDE) caused by griseofulvin. Although griseofulvin-induced urticaria is well documented, FDE secondary to griseofulvin is distinctly uncommon. Moreover, the appearance of urticaria and FDE in the same patient following treatment with griseofulvin is, we believe, the first to be described in the literature. The concept of FDE is briefly reviewed.
