After greater than 2 weeks of therapy erythematic maculopapular pruritic lesions appeared initially on the f orearms and later extended to extremities and the rest of the body. Cutaneous side effects have been descripted rarely in the literature. We encountered a case of erythema multiforme in the treatment of preterm labor with ritodrine hy drochloride.
