A 4-month-old male infant presented with a severe desquamating rash involving the face, extremities, perianal and perioral region which was followed by persistent lower respiratory tract infection. Investigations revealed a low serum zinc level and a positive sweat chloride test. In this case, we aim to emphasize that although cystic fibrosis in children usually presents with respiratory and gastrointestinal manifestations, mucocutaneous involvement could be a rare feature of this multisystemic disorder.
