Blueberry muffin baby is a term used to describe the characteristic distributed purpura due to extramedullary hematopoiesis found in infants.

It was originally considered characteristic of rubella, but is now considered to be potentially associated with many other conditions,such as cytomegalovirus and metastatic neuroblastoma.
