The development of a skin eruption following the use of sulfonamides does not as a rule present a difficult therapeutic problem, since in most instances the rash clears up with the cessation of the chemotherapy. Additional benefit may also be obtained from the use of epinephrine or the antihistaminic drugs. There are, however, instances of sulfonamide eruption in which the routine measures are of no avail. In the case herein reported the rash did not respond to the standard forms of treatment but cleared up promptly following the intravenous administration of procaine.
