Angiokeratoma-like purpuric palmar nodules following chemotherapy


We describe a patient with leukemia undergoing chemotherapy who developed painful purpuric nodules of the digits. These findings were concerning for endocarditis (clinically) and angiokeratomas on gross histology. After extensive evaluation, we report the development of painful purpuric nodules as a likely side effect of the patient's therapeutic regimen (hydroxyurea, danorubicin, cytarabine, and methotrexate).
