A 2-day-old male patient was seen in consultation in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) for multiple erythematous, scaly papules that were present at birth. He was born full-term via uncomplicated vaginal delivery following a healthy pregnancy to two non-consanguineous parents. He was otherwise healthy. Physical examination showed a well-appearing male with erythematous papules with scale on his scalp, face, trunk, and bilateral upper and lower extremities (Figures 1 and 2). The axilla and inguinal folds were involved as well. A 4 mm punch biopsy was performed on one of the representative papules on his abdomen. A high-power view of the histopathology is shown in Figure 3.
