Rosai dorfmann disease (RDD) is a rare disease of histiocytic origin, with an obscure aetiology. Usually it manifests as bilateral cervical lymphadenopathy in young adults, with cutaneous involvement seen in 43% cases. Pure cutaneous from of RDD (PC - RDD) is very rare and amount for 3% of RDD. PC- RDD is enigmatic for the clinicians as the diagnosis is often delayed or missed due to its rarity, vague and overlapping presentations. We here in report a PC – RDD in a 53 year old male with a brief review of literature.
