Gianotti-Crosti syndrome

a viral disease of young children, generally benign and self-limited, characterized by skin-colored or reddish, flat-topped, firm papules forming a symmetrical eruption in an acral distribution, usually on the face, buttocks, or limbs, including the palms and soles. Symptoms are mild; the child may have malaise and a low grade fever. Several different viruses may cause it, but most commonly the hepatitis B virus. Called also infantile acrodermatitis and papular acrodermatitis of childhood.
