Abstract

We describe the clinical course of a 2-month-old infant who was evaluated for autosomal dominant Hyper IgE Syndrome based on eczema, periorbital cellulitis, skin abscesses, increased total IgE levels and blood eosinophilia. However, scabies and nasal colonization by Panton-Valentine Leucocidin-positive S. aureus were eventually diagnosed. After specific treatment, the child was asymptomatic.
