Abstract

Pustulosis acuta generalisata is an uncommon condition characterized by scattered symmetrical eruption of sterile pustules associated with elevated inflammatory markers, leukocytosis, fever and arthropathy caused by previous infection by group A streptococci (GAS). We reported here a case of pustulosis acuta generalisata in an HIV-positive patient recently treated with chemotherapy for a seminoma.
