Gianotti-Crosti syndrome (GCS) is an uncommon dermatological condition characterized by distinct, self-limiting, symmetrical, erythematous, papulovesicular eruptions distributed mainly on the extremities, buttocks and face in young children. Although GCS is commonly attributed to viral infections, vaccinations too can rarely precipitate this condition. We report a rare case of GCS following diptheria, pertussis, and tetanus (DPT) and oral polio immunisation in an 18-month-old child along with a review of similar vaccine-induced GCS cases reported in the literature.
