A Probable Case of Mucosal Fixed Drug Eruption Following Treatment with Silodosin

Eleni Klimi


A fixed drug eruption consists of erythematous patches that appear on the skin and/or mucous membranes following administration of a drug which, once healed, leaves residual hyperpigmentation. We report a 76-year-old male who presented to the Thriasio General Hospital, Athens, Greece, in 2016 with erythema, oedema and blistering of the lower lip and glans penis following the administration of silodosin for benign prostatic hyperplasia. The eruption regressed two weeks after silodosin was discontinued.

Keywords: Drug Eruption; Mucous Membranes; Erythema; Blister; Silodosin; Case Report; Greece.
