Abstract

Dapsone is an antibiotic and anti-inflammatory drug used to treat a variety of diseases, but it is most frequently prescribed to leprosy patients. The most frequent side effects of this medication are nausea, appetite loss, and dizziness, but in this case, dapsone hypersensitivity syndrome (DHS) also seems to be a side effect. It is a rare side effect of dapsone. A 38-year-old woman arrived with complaints of fever, skin lesions all over her body, and itching for seven days. She was also a known case of leprosy for 30 days prior, for which the (MDT) regimen - Rifampicin 600mg, dapsone 100mg - was being used. The patient recovered after stopping the dapsone, according to the case report.

Keywords: Dapsone, Dapsone hypersensitivity syndrome, Leprosy.
