Unilateral aplasia cutis congenita on the leg.

We present the case of a newborn male with aplasia cutis congenita on the extensor side of the right leg, with unilateral absence of skin on the lower limb. There was no abnormality in pregnancy or birth and there was no associated malformation or skin disease such as blistering or nail pathology. The management of this large ulcer was conservative, using silver sulfadiazine ointment, and healing occurred within 3 months. The follow-up after 21 months showed little scar formation and no handicap regarding function and appearance. The psychomotor development was normal. According to the classification outlined by Frieden, we classified this condition as type VII aplasia cutis congenita.
