We describe a 62-year-old woman who developed severe, cutaneous, leukocytoclastic vasculitis following administration of Naproxen. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are widely used by millions for their analgetic as well as anti-inflammatory effects. While side-effects involving the kidney and the gastrointestinal tract are well known, hypersensitivity vasculitis is rarely reported. We report an additional case.
