Hypoprothrombinemic states are commonly treated with injectable vitamin K. Cutaneous vitamin K hypersensitivity can manifest as eczematous or sclerodermoid lesions and historically has been related to the use of fat-soluble vitamin K1. We present a case of warfarin-induced hypoprothrombinemia treated with aqueous vitamin K1, which resulted in the appearance of eczematous vitamin K1 hypersensitivity.
