Abstract

Introduction: Exfoliative dermatitis(ED) is an inflammatory skin disease characterized by generalized (> 90) erythema and scaling .ED is similar to Kawasaki in fever, rash, desquamation and conjunctivitis and redness of lips (sometimes). The patients: In the present study we report five children with ED. The interesting point is that one of the children had ED as the clinical presentation of Kawasaki. Conclusion: History of medicine consumption, generalized lymphadenopathy, scaling at the first days of rash, generalized desquamation and normal ESR are in discriminating ED from Kawasaki.
