Primary cutaneous aspergillosis is a rare cutaneous disease that usually affects the immunocompromised patients. The most common associated disorders in children are leukemias and lymphomas although it can also occur in the neonates and preterms due to their immunological immaturity. Here we report a case of a 8-year-old boy diagnosed with B cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia during chemotherapy, developed multiple vesicular erythematous cutaneous lesions in the venepuncture area of the left forearm, and histopathology was suggestive of Aspergillosis.
