Granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF) infusion has been reported with the development of transient maculopapular rash with spontaneous resolution. A 54-year-old Indian female developed intense erythematous generalised rash involving the face, trunk, extremities, palms and soles following GM-CSF infusion. Focal exudation and purpura were seen. Infusion was stopped and she was managed with a short course of systemic steroids. As yet, the development of such an atypical, severe rash following this cytokine infusion has not been reported in the literature.
