An 8-year-old male child presented with complaints of pain abdomen and appearance of rashes all over the body, with pain and swelling of the left knee joint. The child was a known case of developmental delay with seizure disorder, and the rashes had appeared just after starting oral valproate. On examination, the child appeared well except for the rashes and local swelling with decreased range of motion in the left knee joint. Redness around the urethral meatus was also noted. Skin biopsy revealed features suggestive of reactive arthritis. The child responded well to nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.
