Standard short course chemotherapy is the key element of the DOTS strategy and these drugs cause different kinds of cutaneous adverse drug reactions that usually occur within 2 months of initiation of treatment in around 97% of the patients. We hereby report a case of a 16-year-old female patient who developed butterfly pattern hypopigmented rashes after 3 months of starting on category 1 antitubercular treatment (ATT). Other causes with similar picture were ruled out with additional investigations and the case was confi rmed as ATT induced hypopigmented rash. WHO-UMC causality assessment showed a probable association. [Int J Basic Clin Pharmacol 2014; 3(2.000): 410-411]
