Aplasia cutis congenita type VII of the lower extremity: a favourable disease course with minimal conservative treatment.

BMJ Case Reports 2024 April 18
Aplasia cutis congenita (ACC) is a group of rare heterogeneous disorders characterised by absent areas of skin at birth. The majority of cases involve the scalp region. ACC limited to one lower limb is extremely rare. We report an usual case of ACC limited to the left thigh of which healing occurred in utero. The case was managed conservatively and the disease course has been favourable with no limitations in limb function and an entirely normal development. Most cases of ACC are self-healing, justifying a conservative approach. This holds further true for ACC limited to one lower limb where the majority of cases reported to date show a favourable disease course with minimal conservative treatment.
