DRESS or drug reaction (or rash) with eosinophilia and systemic symptoms belongs to the severe cutaneous adverse reaction group and is characterized by hematological abnormalities and visceral organ involvement. Although most often related with anticonvulsant and sulfonamide use, it is reported with numerous other drugs. We report an unusual case of DRESS syndrome due to Leflunomide, also complicated by renal involvement in the form of granulomatous interstitial nephritis and vasculitis. On a review of the literature, eight similar cases were found, and these are discussed.
