Abstract

Recognition of cutaneous side effects of bleomycin, a commonly used chemotherapeutic agent, is important to avoid unnecessary discontinuation of therapy. Here, we present the case of a 15-year-old boy who was undergoing treatment with standard BEP (bleomycin, etoposide, and cisplatin) regime, presented with flagellate hyperpigmented lesions in the back, arm, and thighs.
