Harlequin color change is a benign, transient skin color change of unknown etiology sometimes seen in the neonatal period. It has been rarely reported in preterm infants. Herein, we report a case of harlequin color change developed in premature infants without any adverse consequences. During the event, infant was receiving antibiotic treatment for probable sepsis in addition to routine supportive care. Harlequin color change should be recognized properly to avoid unnecessary treatment.
