1. A total of 1008 cases under treatment with antituberculous drugs were included in the study. Cutaneous reactions to antituberculous drugs in the form of skin rash were seen only in 18 (1.8%) patients. 2. Thiacetazone was found to be the commonest offending drug followed by isoniazid. No adverse reaction was observed in patients on pyradnamide. 3. Morphologically commonest type of cutaneous rash observed was papulosquamous type (7 patients) followed by acneiform eruptions (4 patients) and macular rash (3 patients). The clinical diagnosis was confirmed by disappearence of rashes on stopping the suspected drug.
