The group of the non-classic infectious exanthems are mostly maculopapular or vesicular. The latter changes are typical for infections with varicella-zoster virus and Coxsackie viruses. Congenital cytomegalovirus infections are characterized by petechiae and purpura, while the papular-purpuric gloves and socks syndrome is usually associated with parvovirus B19. Aside from these, the non-classic infectious exanthems diseases include nonspecific exanthems coupled with respiratory and enteric infections.
