Ecthyma gangrenosum (EG) is pathognomonic of invasive Pseudomonas infection or septicemia. It is characterized by pustules that rapidly evolve into hemorrhagic blister with central necrosis with the surrounding erythema. It is more often seen in immunocompromised patients but can be seen in healthy neonate also. We report the case of a 4-day-old neonate presenting with Pseudomonas bacteremia and EG.
