Abstract

Atypical complete DiGeorge syndrome (DGS) is an extremely rare congenital disease characterized by an eczematous dermatitis, lymphadenopathy, and an oligoclonal T-cell proliferation. Because its initial presentation may be confused with other types of eczematous dermatitis, diagnosis and treatment are usually delayed. We describe herein a case of an infant with atypical complete DGS to draw attention to the clinical and histopathological findings that lead us to the diagnosis.
