Hypersensitivity reactions to parenteral vitamin K.


Cutaneous hypersensitivity reactions to vitamin K are rare. They occur almost exclusively with fat-soluble vitamin K (K1). The lesion is most commonly a pruritic, indurated plaque at the site where the vitamin was injected. Most plaques resolve within 4 to 8 week without sequelae, but some progress to produce scar-like changes that may last for years.
