Aplasia cutis congenita
Aplasia cutis congenita (ACC) is a rare congenital defect of the skin, with an estimated incidence of 1:3,000-10,000 births. We report three cases of non-syndromic ACC, of which one was not acknowledged immediately after birth. All the patients were treated conservatively or with standard wound/encephalocele treatment with satisfying results. Children born with ACC should be examined for other congenital defects and referred to dermatological assessment and treatment of the lesion.
