Scabies is a common infestation in children with the varied presentation. Unusual types of clinical presentation of scabies are encountered generally in patients with immunosuppression either due to disease conditions or external medications in the form of immunosuppressant. This poses a diagnostic dilemma and a therapeutic challenge to the treating physician. Reporting of atypical presentation of scabies manifestations widens the horizon and increases the chances of rapid diagnosis and appropriate treatment. We hereby report a case of 6-month-old child of scabies presenting with a cluster of jewel appearances of the lesions masquerading a chronic bullous dermatosis of childhood like picture.
