Cutaneous leukocytoclastic vasculitis after second dose of mRNA COVID-19 vaccine

Numerous cutaneous reactions following COVID-19 vaccination have already been described. Vasculitis, however, is a rare adverse event, occurring mainly after the first COVID-19 vaccination. Herein, we report a patient with IgA-positive cutaneous leukocytoclastic vasculitis, unresponsive to a moderate dose of systemic corticosteroid that erupted after the second dose of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine. Since booster vaccinations are being administered, we intend to raise awareness among clinicians and to highlight this potential reaction and its therapeutic approach.
