Recognizing these presentations and the temporal relationship between drug intake and reaction is essential in preventing severe and potentially fatal results. We present a patient who had a sudden post-injection inflammatory response consistent with Nicolau syndrome after a 6 month course of repeated intramuscular naltrexone injections.
