ABSTRACT

Bleomycin-induced flagellate erythema is a rare rash associated with the use of the drug. The rash has a characteristic and intermingled lacy appearance as if it has been whipped. Lack of detoxifying enzymes for bleomycin in the skin makes it a vulnerable site for the adverse effects of bleomycin, along with the lungs. We report the case of young girl with germ cell tumour who developed bleomycin-induced flagellate erythema.
