Fixed drug eruption (FDE) is a specific drug-induced dermatosis with a characteristic recurrence at the same sites of the skin or mucous membrane. FDE is frequently associated to non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs exposure. This condition can mimic serious medical conditions such as Stevens-Johnson syndrome when bullae are present.
