Acute generalized exanthematous pustulosis (AGEP) is an acute pustular eruption characterized by multiple small, sterile, non-follicular pustules on an erythematous and edematous base, usually accompanied by fever and neutrophilia. It is attributed to systemic drugs in over 90% of cases, mainly ß-lactam and macrolide antimicrobials. Viral infections, mercury exposure, Ginkgo biloba, and spider bites may occasionally cause the condition. We report a rare case of AGEP induced by intake of lacquer chicken in a 40-year-old man.
