Abstract

Abstract Gianotti-Crosti syndrome, a distinctive eruption occurring after hepatitis B infection, is characterized by symmetric, nonpruritic lichenoid papules usually localized to the face, limbs, and buttocks. In North America, hepatitis B antigenemia is rarely associated with Gianotti-Crosti syndrome in infants. Recent reports indicate there are a variety of infectious agents associated with Gianotti-Crosti syndrome. We report a case of an 11-month-old white female infant with Gianotti-Crosti syndrome and concurrent primary Epstein-Barr virus infection without evidence of hepatitis B infection.
