Aplasia cutis congenita (ACC) is a rare heterogenous disorder which is characterized by focal absence of skin
since birth. Underlying structures such as bone or dura may also be involved. ACC has been considered
to be a forme fruste of a neural tube defect by many authors. It might occur in isolation or in association with
certain syndromes. We report a case of a new born male with membranous type of ACC over vertex extending
to the left parietal region with partial agenesis of parietal bone and ectopic mongolian spot over left ankle. In
our case the neonate’s mother is a known case of multiple sclerosis and was on oral steroids and vitamin B12
supplements in her first trimester. She also received a single dose of intravenous immunoglobin (IVIG) in her
first trimester. Due to lack of supporting literature it was difficult to determine as to whether either corticosteroids
or maternal multiple sclerosis caused ACC in the neonate, hence a possibility of either is considered in the
present scenario. To the best of our knowledge such a case has not been reported till now.
