A 16-week-old white boy presented with generalized refractory dermatitis that began 8 weeks earlier as scattered facial papules that gradually coalesced to eczematous plaques. His face, scalp, and antecubital fossae were involved, and a diagnosis of atopic dermatitis with seborrhea was proposed (Figure 1). The eruption initially improved with emollients and a change in formula; however, 2 weeks later, the patient presented with diffuse erythroderma and alopecia coinciding with acute otitis media. There was no notable medical history other than recurrent episodes of otitis media.
