Abstract

Leukocytoclastic vasculitis (LCV) is a small-vessel vasculitis characterized by immune complex deposition in the walls of dermal capillaries and venules. With the COVID-19 pandemic, more adults are receiving the MMR vaccine. We report a case of MMR vaccine-related LCV occurring only on the upper extremities with associated conjunctivitis.
