We describe a healthy peripheral blood stem cell (PBSC) donor who developed a cutaneous reaction, erythema exsudativum multiforme, during the administration of granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) for mobilization. The cutaneous lesions were located on his hips, apart from the site of G-CSF injection. Treatment with topical corticosteroid was commenced, and the lesions resolved completely within a week. Adverse cutaneous reactions induced by G-CSF have been reported infrequently in healthy donors. Further documentation of cases and their full evaluation will be of great importance for both physicians and PBSC donor.
