Will you lose your hair if you get rituximab injection?

Uncommon. It is uncommon to lose hair with Rituximab therapy. It can affect the immune system so theoretically, it can indirectly cause hair loss. However, I have never seen hair loss from Rituximab infusions. So my final answer would be unlikely.
