Abstract
Cytarabine, used for the treatment of acute myelogenous leukemia, can cause a rare reaction of inflammation of existing seborrheic keratoses. We report a case of cytarabine induced inflammation of seborrheic keratoses mimicking a vesicular eruption in 53-yearold man with acute myelogenous leukemia.
