Many cases of cutaneous vasculitis are druginduced with histology revealing leukocytoclastic vasculitis (LCV). We present a case of levofloxacin-associated LCV successfully treated with prednisone and cessation of the offending drug. Although case reports describe a link between LCV and older fluoroquinolones, such as ciprofloxacin and ofloxacin, recent reports have implicated the newer fluoroquinolone levofloxacin. Recognition of fluoroquinoloneinduced cutaneous vasculitis is important as continuation or re-exposure of the offending agent may have life-threatening consequences.
