Özet

Pseudomonas aeruginosa bacteremia or sepsis often occurs in hospitals, affecting mainly children with underlying disease. Ecthyma gangrenosum is classically considered a pathognomonic sign of sepsis by P. aeruginosa. The harlequin baby, a severe variant of ichthyosis, occurs rarely, and these infants are at high risk of cutaneous infections and sepsis. We herein report a harlequin baby who developed ecthyma gangrenosum.
