Acute hemorrhagic edema of childhood is an unusual form of leukocytoclastic vasculitis previously reported in children age 4 months to 3 years. The etiology remains unknown, however, many authors describe the process as an immune-mediated vasculitis in response to a variety of antigenic stimuli. We report a case of congenital acute hemorrhagic edema of childhood associated with maternal gastroenteritis six weeks before delivery.
