Copyright: (C)2011 Indian Journal of Dermatology, Venereology, and Leprology

A 14-month-old male child presented to our outpatient clinic with pruritic vesicles that had started a month ago, first on the face and then on the hands and feet. With detailed history obtained from his mother we learned that he had had similar complaints in the newborn period, during the last summer, and again during the spring of the present year. She said that his lesions had healed on each occasion, leaving white spots. The family history was negative for photosensitivity.

Dermatological examination revealed a papulovesicular eruption on the face and extremities and hypopigmented scars on the dorsal aspect of his hands [Figure - 1] and [Figure - 2]. The skin type of the patient was type II. The complete blood cell count and the liver and renal function tests were found to be in the normal ranges. The direct microscopic examination for Sarcoptes scabiei was negative. Histopathological examination of skin biopsy showed superficial orthokeratosis, spongiosis, irregular acanthosis, epidermal degeneration, and minimal perivascular chronic inflammatory cell infiltration in the upper dermis [Figure - 3].
