Pustulosis acuta generalisata is an acute, sterile and self-limiting pustular eruption of the skin following a streptococcal throat infection. Other diseases can express similarly, and the differential diagnosis between them may be difficult. We believe that many of these diseases may belong to the same pattern reaction in front of different stimulus, mainly infections or drugs. They should be included in the neutrophilic dermatosis spectrum under the denomination of reactive pustulosis. We report three patients that illustrate the difficulties in the diagnostic of pustulosis acuta generalisata.
