Int J Trichology. 2016 Oct-Dec;8(4):184-185. doi: 10.4103/ijt.ijt_90_15.


Aplasia cutis congenita (ACC) is a rare disorder characterized by localized absence of skin that most commonly affects the scalp. We present a case of ACC in a 45-day-old girl and the dermoscopic findings. Dermoscopy has shown to be an easy, fast and useful method for the diagnosis of this condition.
