Educational paper: neonatal skin lesions


Although most skin lesions in neonates are transient or benign, they may also be the presenting symptom of a life-threatening disease such as herpes neonatorum. In the present review, we present a short overview of neonatal skin lesions and a practical table to guide the general paediatrician in the diagnosis and management of neonatal skin lesions. Recent reviews are cited for further reading.
