To the Editor: Valdecoxib, a cyclo-oxygenase-2 inhibitor, is generally well tolerated although severe cutaneous adverse reactions have been reported to the manufacturer early in the postmarketing phase of this drug. We report two patients who developed fever, malaise, and an unusual purpuric eruption associated with valdecoxib use.
