A newborn with microcephaly presented hemorrhagic bullous purpura triggered by heat in the 1st h of life. Doppler arterial and venous ultrasound excluded vascular complications. Cytomegalovirus was detected in blood, urine, and serum of the lesions. The final diagnosis was cytomegalovirus congenital infection due to reactivation in an immune mother, with associated purpuric rash, confirmed by cerebral magnetic resonance imaging.
