Congenital juvenile xanthogranuloma with ulceration: a pediatric case report
Published Web Locationhttps://doi.org/10.5070/D3237035750
Congenital juvenile xanthogranuloma (JXG) is an uncommon diagnosis and even more rarely presents with ulceration. We report such a case in a two-week-old girl. Biopsy was performed to rule out any concerning entities. Adequate treatment was provided with topical petrolatum and occasional miconozole or zinc oxide; the mass spontaneously regressed. Because congenital JXG has an excellent prognosis, insight into unique presentations such as this may provide useful information and avoid unnecessary surgical interventions.
