Reactions 1680, p255 - 2 Dec 2017 Intracorneal pustular drug eruption, actinic keratosis and porokeratosis: case report An elderly man [age at the time of reaction onset not clearly stated] developed intracorneal pustular drug eruption, actinic keratosis and porokeratosis during treatment with nivolumab [dosage not stated]. The man was diagnosed melanoma of the right calf in September 2014 at the age of 79 years. In May 2016, his melanoma progressed and metastasised to his brain. As a result, in May 2016, he started receiving treatment with nivolumab infusions every two weeks. Eight weeks later, after four nivolumab cycles, he developed non-tender, erythematous scaly plaques and pustules on the legs, forehead and arms. The histology showed intracorneal pustules with dermal neutrophils and eosinophils. Consequently, a diagnosis of intracorneal pustular drug eruption, with an incidental diagnosis of actinic keratosis and porokeratosis was made. The man was treated with betamethasone-valerate and urea cream. Following the treatment, his intracorneal pustular drug eruption resolved. His nivolumab therapy was continued and metastatic melanoma remained stable. Author comment: "We present the first case of intracorneal pustular drug eruption in association with nivolumab, a new cutaneous adverse event associated with anti-[programmed cell death-1]."
