Leukocytoclastic vasculitis (LCV) is the most frequent form of vasculitis at the skin. Cutaneous LCV is associated with a wide spectrum of systemic inflammatory conditions, malignancies, infections, or drug hypersensitivities. We report here 76-year old lady, who developed LCV after treatment with ampicillin-sulbactam for psoas abscess. This is the first report about LCV associated with ampicillin/sulbactam treatment.
