Description
We report the case of a 41-year-old, previously fit and healthy woman who developed a
widespread eruption following acupuncture treatment for musculoskeletal back pain. Four
days after the treatment, she noticed a pruritic papular eruption on her lower back, where the
acupuncture needles had punctured her skin. The eruption then spread to her feet, wrists,
and chest. She took no regular medications apart from levothyroxine for hypothyroidism and
was penicillin allergic.
