Abstract

Acute hemorrhagic edema of infancy is an infrequent disease with a benign course that appears between 3 months and 2 years old and, exceptionally, during the neonatal period. It is characterized by erythematous edema and purpuric lesions involving mainly the face and extremities, with a spontaneous recovery in days to weeks.

We report a case of acute hemorrhagic edema with a neonatal onset in a 17 days-old girl, followed in our service recently.
