Radiation recall dermatitis (RRD) is an acute inflammatory reaction that is localized to an area of skin previously exposed to radiation and is known to be triggered by various systemic drugs. It can be observed weeks to years after the cessation of radiotherapy, and the time interval between administration of the reaction‐triggering drug to the onset of lesions varies from minutes to days.
