  • 48 Accesses

Part of the Clinical Cases in Dermatology book series (CLIDADE)

Abstract

A 5-month-old baby boy was admitted to our hospital with scattered pigmented papules. The onset was at the age of 3 months with many papules on his scalp, then progressed to his abdomen, back and groins. Some papules were self-healing although new lesions had continued to develop.

He is the third child of his parents, by normal vaginal delivery and is vaccinated to date. No member of his family had similar lesions like him.
