Aplasia cutis congenita. Report on 5 family cases involving the scalp.

Aplasia cutis congenita (ACC) is a rare malformation involving the scalp and sometimes the underlying tissues. It may occur as an isolated defect or be combined with congenital malformations and there is often a family background. The mortality rate is high, with infectious and vascular complications. We report our experience based on the treatment of 5 ACC of the scalp in children, where a family pathology was found.Controlled healing is the best approach for us, even for the serious forms. After the acute period, treatment is based on skin expansion and must be followed by genetic screening of the family.
