  • Abstract 

    DRESS syndrome is a rare, potentially life-threatening, drug-induced hypersensitivity reaction. It presents as a skin eruption, hematologic abnormalities, lymphadenopathy and internal organ involvement (liver, kidney, lung). We reported a case of DRESS syndrome where the patient presented with fatigue, headache, joint pain, high fever, chills, puffiness of the face and ears with diffuse rash.
