A newborn boy born at term via cesarean section was seen for multiple red-brown plaques and scattered pustules. His mother was a known carrier of chronic granulomatous disease, and she had two affected brothers. On physical examination, we found five 5- to 8-cm firm, red-brown, slightly hyperkeratotic plaques distributed on the right knee; right lateral ankle, heel, dorsal foot surface, and toes (Figure 1); left posterior ankle; and left elbow. No hyperhidrosis was observed. There were multiple scattered minute to 1-mm pustules on his face and neck with areas of superficial erosion and yellow crust.
