Introduction: Acute hemorrhagic edema of infancy is an acute and rare cutaneous disorder that affects children between 4 months to 2 years of age and characterized by cutaneous purpuric lesions with millimeters to centimeters diameter. Systemic involvement is rare. The disease is benign and spontaneously resolved in 1-3 weeks.

Laboratory examination revealed including normal cell blood counts, serum complements, serum electrolytes and creatinin. ANA was negative. Coagulation tests were normal. ESR was 45 mm/h. Urine analysis and stool examination revealed no abnormal findings. Disease resolved spontaneously without any problem.
