A fifty-six-year-old white male diabetic developed leukocytoclastic angiitis after treatment with clindamycin for an infected foot ulcer. The eruption subsided following withdrawal of the drug, recurred when it was re-administered, and cleared after it was again withdrawn. Clindamycin or lincomycin allergy should be considered in the differential diagnosis of leukocytoclastic angiitis in patients who take these drugs.
