The reactions noted in a series of 286 patients treated with Ciba-1906 for various dermatologic conditions were mild and subsided after the drug was discontinued. In one patient the eruption recurred promptly following a test dose. Nausea, diarrhea and a bad taste in the mouth were other reactions noted. Drug allergy should be considered when morbilliform eruptions appear in patients under Ciba-1906 therapy.
