Introduction: Rosai-dorfman disease (RDD) is a self-limiting, non-Langerhans cell histiocytosis of unknown etiology. It was originally thought to involve only the lymph nodes, however recent literature suggests extranodal involvement as wel. Case Report: Herein we report a case of cutaneous RDD in a six year-old girl, presenting with multiple subcutaneous nodules. Discussion: Cutaneous RDD is an extremely rare entity and unlike classic RDD, it has a predilection for the age group above 40 years and is more common in females. It is extremely rare in children.
