Abstract

Acute Generalized Exanthematous Pustulosis is a rare drug-induced skin disorder that can present at any age. It is typically noted by swelling and erythema, with numerous facial and/or anogenital nonfollicular pustules that quickly disseminate. Staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome presents with erythema and swelling that similarly favor the head and intertriginous sites with subsequent bullae formation. We present a case of a four-year-old female who presented with SSSS complicated by the development of AGEP and discuss the course of her condition and treatment.
