Introduction: Many conditions included under figurate erythemas have similar clinical appearance which makes diagnosis difficult. Among these, eosinophilic annular erythema (EAE) is a rare, uncommon, underreported entity in the pediatric population. Case Report: Herein, we report an 11-year-old boy who presented with asymptomatic recurrent, erythematous-edematous annular plaques with central hyperpigmentation. Discussion: Review of the literature shows scarce reporting of such cases globally and none from India. Clinicopathological findings of our case, suggest that eosinophilic annular erythema is a distinct entity rather than a type of Wells' syndrome.
