Intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) therapy has been used to treat a variety of immune mediated disorders.
Cutaneous reactions to IVIG are rare and have only been anecdotally described. We describe three cases with
dyshidrotic-like biopsy proven spongiotic dermatitis after administration of IVIG. These three cases may highlight
an uncommon and rarely reported side effect of IVIG.
