Abstract

In four patients the development of erythematous plaques after vitamin K injections was apparently due to delayed hypersensitivity reactions. The 36 cases described in the literature indicate that most patients with the reaction received vitamin K injections for liver disease and that a late sclerodermatous reaction develops rarely.
