IV contrast allergy is a serious problem for patients who require repeat contrast administration. We present a case of a patient with a history of ioversol-induced Stevens Johnson Syndrome received the same offending agent 2 years later. While his initial reaction involved oral and ocular mucosal ulcerations, the subsequent reaction spared the mucosa likely due to oral antihistamine and steroid pre-treatment. With each presentation, his cutaneous manifestations affected the face only. To the best of our knowledge, such unique presentation has not been previously described in the medical literature.
