It has become important to be careful in terms of side effects with the increased lenalidomide use. The most commonly reported adverse events with the use of lenalidomide were hematologic toxicities and less frequently peripheral edema, infections, gastrointestinal disorders, fatigue, and muscle cramps. In particular, the nonserious rash is the most common cause of permanent discontinuation of lenalidomide. Although morbilliform, urticarial, or acneiform rashes have been observed with lenalidomide, malar rash-like lesions have not been described previously. Our aim is to present here 71-year-old female myelodysplastic syndrome patient with deletion of 5q abnormality who should be discontinued lenalidomide due to recurrent skin reaction like a malar rash.
