Sport-induced vasculitis is a frequently misdiagnosed or ignored disease that occurs after prolonged muscular activity. Erythematous, urticarial or purpuric lesions arise on the lower leg. They are asymptomatic or sometimes itchy, painful or burning; usually fade after resting for a few days to relapse promptly when training is resumed. We present an unusual case arising in a water-sport never reported before.
