A 9-month-old boy was brought to the emergency department with an acute onset of fever anddisseminated purpura with oedema on his feet, lower legs, arms and face. Based on the clinical presentation a differential diagnosis of acute haemorrhagic edema of infancy (AHEI) was made. During the second day of hospitalization, the purpura and oedema became more extensive, the child had a high fever and stridor and black toes. Eventually the diagnosis of AHEI was confirmed.
