Molluscum contagiosum is a viral infection of the skin. It may occur anywhere on the skin surface but is most common in skinfolds, on the face, and in the genital region. Atypical presentations are usually seen in conditions with altered immunity, but they may occur in immunocompetent patients as well. We present a case of an unusual presentation of molluscum contagiosum lesions (multiple normal and one giant) on the plantar area of the foot in an adult.
