Erythema multiforme is exceptional in newborns, and none of the few available reports has revealed a clear etiologic agent, not even herpes simplex virus. Immunocompetent patients rarely present with cutaneous cytomegalovirus involvement, and few cases of cytomegalovirus-associated erythema multiforme have been described, none of them in newborns. We report the first case of erythema multiforme in a newborn associated with cytomegalovirus infection.
