Abstract

INTRODUCTION

Aplasia cutis congenital (ACC) is a rare congenital anomaly characterized by partial or complete absence of the skin1. This disorder was first described by Cordon in 1767 in the extremities and in scalp by Campbell in 18622. Association of ACC with distal limb anomalies was demonstrated by Adams-Oliver in 19453. Various subtypes are explained on the basis of modes of inheritance, associated malformations, pattern of lesions and their location4. The condition has an incidence of 3 per 10000 live births and in 70% of cases occurs as a solitary lesion but may present as multiple lesions with involvement of different body parts5.
