Abstract

SILVEIRA, Júlio César Gomes; CUNHA, Beatriz Moreira da  and  ESTRELLA, Rogério Ribeiro. Bleomycin- induced flagellate dermatitis. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2006, vol.81, n.1, pp. 83-85. ISSN 1806-4841.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962006000100011.

Bleomycin is an antineoplastic drug used in the treatment of different tumors. It has several side effects, including a cutaneous hyperpigmentation with a flagellate aspect, which is considered specific to Bleomycin. We report two cases of Bleomycin-induced flagellate dermatitis and discuss the clinical and etiopathogenic aspects in a brief blibliographic revision.

Keywords : Bleomycin; Chemotherapy; Hodgkin’s disease.
