We describe a female neonate with large flaccid pustules on her trunk and extremities. Cultures were negative, and a Wright-stained smear of pustule contents showed numerous eosinophils (>90%). The pustules resolved without leaving pigmentation after 2 weeks. We diagnosed this case as sterile transient neonatal pustulosis.
