Abstract

Unilateral laterothoracic exanthem is a self-limited disease that occurs most commonly in children. It is characterized by unilateral exanthem, often in axillary region. The etiology is unknown, but a viral agent is suspected. We report a 1-year-old white girl with unilateral laterothoracic exanthem associated with Epstein Barr virus infection, suggesting this virus has a possible etiologic role.
