Iododerma from Contrast Material: NEJM Case Report

  • NEJM reports a image case of iododerma, patient after  Intravenous urography, Several hours later, generalized pustular eruptions developed, with multiple coalescing vesicles and pus-filled bullae observed on the patient’s face and ears, his trunk, and his arms and legs. 
  • Although its pathogenesis is not understood, delayed iodine clearance and the induction of neutrophil degranulation have been proposed as mechanisms. 
  • Treatment with thalidomide was initiated, and the skin lesions completely resolved within 4 weeks.
