Pityriasis rosea (PR) is an acute, self-limited skin disease thought to be a viral exanthem caused by reactivation of HHV-7 and HHV-6 viruses; although, numerous studies have explored various pathogens. Several reports associate PR with drugs and vaccines. We report a typical case of PR in a 26-year-old male following intradermal anti-rabies vaccine (ARV). There are reports of vaccine-induced pityriasis like eruptions due to various vaccine. However, PR-like eruptions due to ARV is rarely reported. This case represents a new side effect of an already existing vaccine and throws light on varied etiologies of vaccine-induced PR.
