A 26-year-old man presented with coarse facies, recurrent cutaneous “cold abscesses”, upper respiratory tract infection and candidiasis since infancy. Laboratory investigations showed extremely high serum 1gE (2701 1 U/l) level and pus culture from an abscess grew coagulase positive staphylococcus and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Besides surgical drainage of the abscess and a short course of cephalexin, zinc sulphate (220 mg/day) was administered orally for six months. All lesions healed within a fortnight and clinical remission was observed for one year on follow up.
