Eruptive collagenoma is a rare acquired connective tissue nevus predominantly composed of collagen, with elusive incidence and etiopathogenesis. Many cases are reported in young adults, but there is a dearth of literature in children. Herein, we report a rare case of eruptive collagenoma in a 5-year-old child who presented with multiple asymptomatic papules, plaques, and nodules over the back and face with no systemic involvement. There was no positive family history or history of consanguineous marriage, and diagnosis was confirmed histopathologically. We report this case due to its rarity in Indian literature in pediatric population with facial involvement.
