In this report, the unusual case of an infant with extensive eruptive molluscum contagiosum (MC) scattered over the back and buttocks that became inflammatory with blackening and subsequently healed spontaneously over a short period of time is described. To our knowledge, the blackening of spontaneous regressing MC has not yet been described. The mechanism involved in the phenomenon of spontaneous resolution of the inflammatory MC with blackening is discussed.
