Pityriasis rosea (PR) is a benign skin eruption that typically affects children and young adults. In rare cases, similar rash was attributed to several drugs. A retrospective study from 2011 to 2020 to record all cases of drug adverse cutaneous reactions presenting with pityriasis rosea like eruption was made. Diagnosis was based on clinical manifestations, latency period between taking the drug and onset of the skin eruption, exclusion of alternative diagnoses and histopathology findings. The causality assessment was based on the Naranjo Adverse Drug Probability Scale.
