Abstract A healthy boy had the distinctive lesions of erythrokeratodermia variabilis (EKV) at birth. Twenty-eight patients described in the literature had EKV that presented in childhood. Nine of the 28 were said to have had a rash since birth, but none were distinctive of EKV. To our knowledge this is the first well-documented case describing a child born with the skin manifestations of EKV. We conclude that patients with EKV are infrequently born with a rash, and that only very rarely when the rash is present is it suggestive of the disorder.
