The molluscum contagiosum, is a common viral infection, caused by an double-helix DNA Ortopoxvirus, a Poxviridae family virus. The molluscum contagiosum, interests primarily the childish age, involving both gender. Clinical features are characterized by dome shaped and traslucent papules. We describe a case of a 7-week-old newborn with an unusual localization of molluscum contagiosum. Authors present this case because of this inusual localization and they try to hypothesize the pathogenesis of the lesions.
