Nicorandil is a potassium-channel activator that is widely used in the long-term management of ischaemic heart disease. Case reports have linked nicorandil with painful oral, perianal, gastrointestinal and parastomal ulceration (Egred 2006; Watson et al. 2002). We describe three patients with nicorandil-induced ulceration; two patients with vulval ulceration and one patient with inguinal ulceration.
