Blueberry Muffin Baby is term given to characteristic eruption in neonates, often present at birth, comprising widespread, purple, erythematous, oval or circular macules, papules and nodules reflecting dermal erythropoiesis seen in a number of congenital infections, notably rubella, cytomegalovirus, coxsackie B2 infection, parvovirus B19, congenital syphilis, toxoplasmosis, rhesus incompatibility. Nonketotic Hyperglycinemia (NKHG) is an inborn error of glycine degradation in which large quantities of glycine accumulate in body tissues, including CNS, and has been associated with "Blue-Berry Muffin" Baby. We report an infant with blue berry muffin lesions associated with Non Ketotic hyperglycemia (NKHG). To the best of our knowledge Blue berry muffin baby with Non Ketotic hyperglycemia has been rarely reported in Indian literature.
