Job's syndrome or hyper-immunoglobulin E syndrome (HIES) is a heterogeneous complex of immunodeficiencies distinguishes by skin abscesses, recurrent pneumatoceles or staphylococcal infections, high serum immunoglobulin E levels and eczematous dermatitis. It has two types depends on type of gene involved; autosomal-dominant HIES (AD-HIES), which develops due to signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 gene and autosomal recessive HIES caused by DOCK8 gene mutation. Hereby we present a case of 13-month-old male child who admitted to our hospital with pustular lesions on the neck, face and upper chest associated with itching; some of these were hemorrhaged and crusted. The complete clinical presentation and lab investigations have confirmed AD-HIES syndrome. The therapeutic strategy was directed mainly toward the prevention and management of infections and symptoms. This case presents the clinical features, investigational procedures and management strategy for that particular condition in pediatrics.
