Drug-induced photodistributed telangiectasia (PT) is cutaneous side effects resulting from the interaction of ultraviolet (UV) radiation with pharmacotherapy. Reports of PT in literature are scarce. We report twenty-five cases of drug-induced photodistributed telangiectasias, highlighting the potential relationship between the onset of skin lesions, drug-intake and photo-exposure. We alert practitioners that telangiectasia is a possible dermatological phototoxic side-effect to many drugs.
