Abstract: 

Rashes in the anogenital and buttock regions are some of the commonest dermatological problems occurring in infancy. The most frequent causes seen in clinical practice are ulcerating haemangiomas, bullous impetigo and severe irritant contact dermatitis. Other causes include nutritional deficiencies, bullous diseases, trauma, Langerhans cell histiocytoses and inflammatory disorders such as pyoderma gangrenosum and Crohn’s disease and primary immunodeficiencies. We present an infant with 6 month age with punched out ulcers in inguinal and buttock regions that was referred for immunodeficiency work up but in our investigations a different diagnosis was made for her.
