Ocrelizumab is an intravenous anti-CD20 monoclonal antibody, approved for use in primary progressive multiple sclerosis due to its selective depletion of B-lymphocytes. Herein we describe the case of a 56-year-old female who developed odynophagia and bloody diarrhea following treatment with ocrelizumab. This was characterized endoscopically by ulcerations in the esophagus and colon. The patient was treated with high-dose intravenous glucocorticoids with good clinical response.
