Juvenile Xanthogranuloma (JXG) is a rare condition that can present as early as a neonate or develop later during paediatric age and adulthood. One should be aware of this entity as it can cause extreme anxiety to parents due to the variety of cutaneous features. Our case report details a JXG in an 11-months-old boy with a circumscribed nodule on his scalp, neck, and left arm. The nodule was histologically identified as a JXG following a skin punch biopsy.
