Abstract A 29-year-old woman with stage IVB Hodgkin's lymphoma was treated with doxorubicin, bleomycin, vinblastine, and dacarbazine. Two weeks after the first cycle was completed, she developed pruritic, linear erythematous lesions in a flagellate-like pattern on the trunk, neck and arms. After oral prednisone therapy and cessation of bleomycin, the lesions started to recede.
