Rituximab is an anti-CD20 chimeric murine/human monoclonal antibody mainly used in the treatment of patients with a cutaneous lymphoid malignancy. Among the side-effects associated with rituximab administration, vasculitis has been rarely reported. There are two reported cases in the English language medical published work. We describe a 38-year-old Korean man with cutaneous vasculitis occurring 1 day after rituximab administration.
