Neonatal vesicopustular eruption comprise a group of disorders with onset in the first four weeks of life. These conditions present multiple differential diagnoses and can be usually identified by clinical examination or simple laboratory procedures. Dermatologists should be able to recognize these eruptions, and most importantly, to differenciate them from serious and life-threatening dermatoses.
