Abstract

Eczema herpeticum has been well described in the setting of atopic dermatitis (AD) and other dermatoses. We present the case of a 2-month-old infant boy with cutaneous herpes simplex virus (HSV) infection within existing diffuse infantile seborrheic dermatitis. Providers should be aware that cutaneous HSV can be confined to a seborrheic distribution and may represent underlying epidermal dysfunction secondary to seborrheic dermatitis.
