Herpeticum-like rash in a child with atopic dermatitis: early clinical suspicion is valuable

Maria Gogou, Stergianna Douma, Katerina Haidopoulou, Andreas Giannopoulos.

Abstract
Dermatological conditions may be associated with emergent medical conditions. We describe the case of a 6-year-old boy with erythematous vesicles with erosion and crusting on face, cheeks and forehead. Due to medical history of atopic dermatitis herpeticum eczema was suspected and appropriate treatment was immediately initiated, while skin lesions were significantly improved.

Key words: herpeticum eczema, Kaposi eczema, atopic dermatitis, children
