A 6-month-old infant presented with a cherry-red papule in the umbilicus, which appeared 2 weeks after birth (Figure 1). The parents reported a history of intermittent exudates of small amounts of pus mixed with blood. The lesion did not change in size, it did not respond to treatment with silver nitrate, and there were no signs of infection. The infant had normal growth and mental development. The pregnancy was uncomplicated, and no medications were given during pregnancy.
