Juvenile xanthogranuloma (JXG) is a benign, self-healing non-Langerhans cell histiocytosis of unknown aetiology, most commonly occurring in infants and children. JXG is characterized by solitary or multiple yellowish cutaneous nodules, the two common clinical variants being a small nodular form and large nodular form, which frequently coexist. Unusual morphological presentations include keratotic, lichenoid, pedunculated, subcutaneous, clustered, plaque-like and giant lesions. We describe the first reported case of 'disseminated' clustered juvenile xanthogranuloma presenting in an infant.
