We report a case of extensive exfoliative dermatitis in a patient appearing 3 days after intracoronary administration of non-ionic contrast medium Iodixanol (Visipaque®) during the primary percutaneous coronary intervention. The patient presented with acute myocardial infarction and has never exposed to any X-ray contrast medium. The patient was successfully treated with corticosteroid, antihistamines and antibiotics for the prevention of secondary bacterial infection. The patient was recovered 8 days after the anti-allergic medical management. This case can be a rare example of late-onset allergic reaction to a non-ionic contrast medium Iodixanol presented with extensive exfoliative dermatitis.
