In Zambia, Population Council researchers are implementing and evaluating the Adolescent Girls Empowerment Program (AGEP) using a randomized control trial, in order to provide strong evidence of the intervention's impact.
The histopathology of AGEP is typically spongiform subcorneal and/or superficial intraepidermal pustules accompanied with edematous papillary dermis and large amounts of perivascular infiltrates (Figure 3) [37, 38].
Skin lesions appeared 3 weeks earlier, the first time in his life, after a few weeks of taking atenolol, which could suggest AGEP, and so the drug was discontinued.
The acute rash with minute pustules and associated leukocytosis with neutrophilia and eosinophilia led to an early diagnosis of AGEP, which may have been triggered by azithromycin--the patient's only recent medication.
Acute generalized exanthematous pustulosis (AGEP) is an uncommon skin eruption characterized by superficial nonfollicular aseptic pustules.
(4) TNF-[alpha], IFN-[gamma], TARC, IL-15, and Other Cytokines/ Chemokines in SJS/TEN, DRESS/DIHS, and AGEP. TNF-[alpha] is a major proinflammatory cytokine and is produced by macrophages, T lymphocytes, NK cells, neutrophils, mast cells, and eosinophils.
In addition, the flavonoids found in MH could counteract effectively the oxidative stress induced by AGEP in diabetics [15].
The features were suggestive of AGEP. The patient was advised to stop the drugs and prescribed with oral methyl prednisolone (28 mg) in tapering dose over 2 weeks.
