Aplasia cutis

Lack of development of the skin of the newborn. It usually occurs on the scalp, but can also be seen on the trunk and extremities. Most often it is superficial that heals in the first weeks of life. Very extensive or deep injuries may require surgery in the newborn period. Most often, they heal with healing and leave a scar, which may require intervention when the child grows up.
