A full-term 1-day-old boy weighing 3140 g was transferred to our tertiary care children’s hospital with large areas of skin defects on his scalp, trunk, and extremities. His parents were nonconsanguineous, and the results of prenatal maternal laboratory screening for human immunodeficiency virus, hepatitis B, group B streptococci, and rapid plasma reagin were negative. Intrauterine fetal death of a twin had been reported at 16 to 18 weeks of gestation. No other complications were noted during…

Challenges in the management of extensive aplasia cutis congenita
TLDR
A multi-disciplinary team comprising neonatologists, paediatric dermatologists, plastic surgeons and medical laboratory scientists at the skin bank employed a more aggressive surgical approach with the aim of avoiding potentially catastrophic morbidity, including sagittal sinus haemorrhage and brain herniation.
Aplasia cutis congenita: management of a large skull defect with acrania.
TLDR
The case of a female newborn with acrania and scalp aplasia cutis congenita is reported, which was treated with a bipedicle scalp flap based on the temporal vessels and full- and partial-thickness skin grafts were used.
A case of systemic aplasia cutis congenita: a newly recognized syndrome?
TLDR
The present case gives strong support to the suggestion that systemic aplasia cutis congenita is a newly recognized syndrome and more cases will have to be reported and studied in order to understand the etiology and establish diagnostic criteria.
Aplasia cutis congenita with fetus papyraceus: report and review of the literature
TLDR
A 2‐week‐old white female who presented with large stellate atrophic skin defects on bilateral thighs and knees at birth is reported, representing aplasia cutis congenita with fetus papyraceus.
Aplasia cutis congenita of the scalp: is there a better treatment strategy?
TLDR
Three newborns with ACC of the scalp, two large defects and a medium one, respectively, treated conservatively and surgically are reported, suggesting that conservative treatment should be performed for initial management in newborns.
Dilemmas and challenges in the management of a neonate with Adams–Oliver syndrome with infected giant aplasia cutis lesion and exsanguination: a case-based update
TLDR
The dilemmas and challenges involved in the successful management of a neonate with Adams–Oliver syndrome with infected aplasia cutis and an episode of life-threatening exsanguination are discussed.
Aplasia cutis congenita of the scalp and calvarium: conservative wound management with novel wound dressing materials.
TLDR
A case of full thickness aplasia cutis congenital lesion bigger than 3 cm in diameter that healed with the application of novel wound dressing materials without any complications is presented.
A case of extensive Aplasia Cutis Congenita with underlying skull defect and central nervous system malformation: discussion of large skin defects, complications, treatment and outcome
TLDR
A case of a newborn male with ACC of the entire crown and vertex scalp, non-ossified parietal skull and dysplastic corpus callosum is reported.
Aplasia Cutis Congenita after Methimazole Exposure in Utero; A case Report and Literature Review
TLDR
A review of the literature seems to support the hypothesis that methimazole is a potential teratogen, and Propylthiouracil should be considered as the first choice drug for hyperthyroid pregnant women until further data on the safety of methIMazole are available.
Aplasia Cutis Congenita in a Newborn Child Associated with Two Fetus Papyraceous.
TLDR
A case with multiple lesions on the trunk, resembling an instance with ACC group 5 is reported, this form of ACC occurs in association with the in utero death of a twin or more (in this case triple) fetus.

Sporadic aplasia cutis congenita
TLDR
With early identification of the etiology of the lesions and appropriate investigation and treatment, including conservative wound management, aplastic lesions can heal successfully without affecting growth, but may require cosmetic repair at a later stage.

TLDR
In the opinion, despite the absence of fetus papyraceous or placental infarct, this patient's condition can be classified as type V, and the patient had a lesion affecting the trunk and extremities symmetrically.
The Association of Aplasia Cutis Congenita with Therapy of Maternal Thyroid Disease
TLDR
An infant with aplasia cutis congenita associated with maternal Grave's disease and the use of methimazole during pregnancy is examined, finding certain implications with respect to therapy of pregnant hyperthyroid women.
Aplasia cutis congenita associated with fetus papyraceous.
TLDR
A healthy infant born with an isolated, truncal cutis aplasia defect in association with a fetus papyraceous points most likely to the vascular causation of the cutaneous defect.
