Job syndrome is a heterogeneous group of disorders characterised by recurrent staphylococcal infections, unusual eczema-like skin rashes, severe lung infections that result in pneumatoceles and very high concentrations of serum IgE. We present a 10-year-old boy with itchy pus-filled lesions all over the body since the third day of life. On examination, multiple excoriated papules and plaques with crusts distributed over the extremities, trunk, face, palms, scalp and genitalia were present. Staphylococcus aureus was grown on the pus culture. Serum IgE was significantly elevated. The patient showed remarkable improvement with topical and systemic antibiotics and vitamin C supplements. Early diagnosis of phagocytic disorders can be lifesaving and can lead to a significant reduction in morbidity.
