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.
