İatrogenic Cushing syndrome is caused by prolonged exogenous administration of glucocorticoid hormones. Long term use of topical corticosteroids, especially in children, may cause Cushing syndrome and suppression of the hypothalamopituitory-adrenal axis, which is less common than that of oral or parenteral usage. Michelin tire baby is a rare genetic disease characterized by generalized skin folding. At birth, circumferential skin fold is a rare sign. In patients one or few folds around the limbs may exist and these folds revealed amniotic band constrictions. . We report this case to highlight that iatrogenic Cushing syndrome in a child can mimic Michelin Tire-Baby syndrome.
