Abstract

Subcorneal pustular dermatosis (SPD), also known as Sneddon-Wilkinson's disease, is a rare pustular eruption that occurs mainly in middle-aged women and rarely during childhood. Clinically, the pustules are distributed on the trunk and proximal region of the limbs, and cultures of the pustules consistently do not reveal bacterial growth. Histopathology shows subcorneal pustules containing polymorphonuclear leukocytes and chronic progression. SPD is a rare condition, especially in children, and only one case has been reported in Korea. Here, we report a case of 4-year-old girl as an educational case for the diagnosis and treatment of pediatric SPD.
