Abstract

Dapsone is commonly used for the prophylaxis of Pneumocystis jiroveci pneumonia in patients with a diagnosis of HIV infection who have allergies to sulfa-based drugs. Dapsone has several adverse effects in its profile that make it a potentially dangerous second-line agent. We report an adverse effect encountered in an HIV-positive patient receiving dapsone and review the common adverse effects encountered with this alternative treatment option.
