A case report of Gianotti-Crosti syndrome (GCS) presents with fever and symmetrical monomorphous erythematous papules at face, buttocks and extremities. All lab tests were negative including mycoplasma, measles, herpes simplex and Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV) were negative except Hepatitis B Virus (HBV) study. Only C-reactive protein (CRP) was positive, a past history of chickenpox infection at 3 weeks of age, we presume that varicella infection may be attributed.
