Bottom Line: Eruptive collagenomas are non familial connective tissue nevi of unknown etiology presented with an abrupt onset.While most cases are reported in young adults, there is a paucity of literature in children.We report a case of a 4-year-old girl, who presented with multiple asymptomatic, papules, plaques and nodules on the face, trunk and upper extremities with no systemic involvement.

ABSTRACT
Eruptive collagenomas are non familial connective tissue nevi of unknown etiology presented with an abrupt onset. While most cases are reported in young adults, there is a paucity of literature in children. We report a case of a 4-year-old girl, who presented with multiple asymptomatic, papules, plaques and nodules on the face, trunk and upper extremities with no systemic involvement. Histopathologically, the lesion showed thickened homogenized collagen fibres highlighted by Masson's trichrome stain and paucity in elastic fibres by Verhoeff-van Gieson stain, confirming the diagnosis of eruptive collagenoma.

Figure 1: Well defined brownish plaques having a leathery surface on flexor aspect of left forearm

Mentions: Clinical examination revealed multiple, symmetrically distributed, brownish papules and plaques having a leathery surface ranging in size from 0.2 × 0.2 cm [Figure 1] to 2.5 × 2.5 cm [Figure 2]. Few skin coloured, firm, non tender nodules, with surface showing irregular thickening, giving a peau d’ orange appearance were noted in the axillae [Figure 3]. No neurocutaneous stigmata, thickened nerves or systemic abnormality was detected.
