Many childhood diseases have cutaneous manifestations such as exanthems. More than 50 agents (viral, bacterial, or rickettsial) that cause exanthems in children have been identified. This article describes a systematic approach for evaluating 12 common exanthems. Diagnosis is made by correlating the location, morphology, and timing of the eruption with associated constitutional signs and symptoms.
