Urticaria Multiforme in a 16-day-old Neonate

LTW Chan, DCY Lau


Abstract

Urticaria multiforme (UM), a relatively new defined disease, is a morphological subtype of urticaria seen in infants and young children, characterised by acute onset of annular or polycyclic wheals with dusky centres in fleeting duration, associated with acral oedema. We report a case of UM in a neonate diagnosed clinically, emphasizing the distinctive dermatologic manifestations of the disease.
