Description:This 1 week old infant presented with erythema toxicum, which can sometimes be confused with “staphylococcal pustulosis”.
Erythema toxicum is a benign rash common to newborns, which has an appearance that at times makes its diagnosis quite difficult, for it mimics the characteristic rash produced by a systemic staph infection, i.e. erythematous maculopapular eruptions.
