Abstract

Acute hemorrhagic edema of infancy (AHEI) is a rare skin disorder introduced for the first time by Snow (1913). The disorder which usually presents exclusively with skin manifestations occurs mostly in less than 2-year-old-age children. Most of the patients have suffered from a background of upper respiratory tract infection and have experienced vaccination or antibiotic treatment before beginning of the symptoms. Clinical sign of the disease is including petechiae, ecchymosis, andedema in head, face, and extremities. We present a typical case of AHEI in a 6- month-old infant.
