To identify factors associated with cutaneous rash, we performed a retrospective multicentre analysis of HIV outpatients starting a highly active antiretroviral therapy regimen containing nevirapine. A total of 62 cutaneous adverse events were observed in 429 patients. Rash hazard was increased in women, by the prophylactic use of glucocorticoids or antihistaminics, and was reduced by escalating the initial dose of nevirapine. Women receiving glucocorticoids had a 3 month cumulative probability of rash of 0.41.
