Hand-foot and mouth disease (HFMD), an acute viral illness, is caused by the Coxsackievirus (CV) that commonly affects young children. We report a case of a 15-month-old female child with painful erosions over the genitalia, following which she developed erythematous macules over the palms and soles. Viral polymerase chain reaction was positive for CV. She was diagnosed to have atypical HFMD. HFMD with atypical manifestations involving the genitalia as initial presentation is a quite unusual or under-reported entity. Prompt recognition of atypical features of HFMD aids in early diagnosis and defers detailed evaluation.
