Cutis laxa is a heterogeneous group of disorders related to abnormalities in elastic tissues. A full-term male neonate, appropriate for gestational age, was admitted in the special newborn care unit because of cleft lip and cleft palate. The baby then developed abdominal distension with feed intolerance, which is a well-described complication of cutis laxa. The baby also developed occipital decubitus ulcers within the 1st week of life. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of decubitus ulcers in the case of cutis laxa.
