Hello, this can be due to over-fertilization, or signs of a fungal infection. If the area has been wet for too long, I would be inclined to believe that this is the case. Treat the area with dolomitic lime, and wettable sulfur, and it will make a recovery. Here is an article for information on proper care of the plant: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/shrubs/rhododendron/rhododendron-care.htm
