Linear vesicles or papules in a newborn can be a presenting sign of incontinentia pigmenti (IP). In this report, we present two cases of neonates with cutaneous manifestations of incontinentia pigmenti. In one case, mild peripheral eosinophilia was noted. No extra-cutaneous manifestations were noted otherwise in both cases after complete ophthalmological and neurological evaluations. These cases serve as a reminder for clinicians to consider IP in newborns presenting with linear vesicles or papules.
