Purple glove syndrome (PGS) is a rare complication of intravenous phenytoin use which typically presents with pain, edema, and discoloration at the injection site that spreads to the distal limb. Several risk factors have been associated with the development of PGS; however, the etiology remains unknown. Treatment is supportive, and most cases resolve within days to weeks.
