BACKGROUND: Gianotti-Crosti Syndrome (GCS) is a characteristic cutaneous eruption following a viral infection. Incidence peaks in early childhood and the syndrome rarely occurs in adulthood. Hepatitis associated with GCS is usually anicteric and acute form.

AIM: To report an adult with GCS associated with HBV infection and presenting icteric progress.

METHODS: The clinical features of the GCS case associated with HBV infection were evaluated.

RESULT: The cutaneous lesions disappeared completely on the 61st day and clearance for HBsAg was also observed.

CONCLUSION: GCS may be seen in adults and may be associated with icteric HBV infection.
