Aplasia cutis congenita is defined as congenital localized absence of skin. This absence of skin most commonly affects the scalp, but any location of the body surface can be affected. Most patients with aplasia cutis congenita have no other anomalies. Aplasia cutis involving trunk and extremities in association with Epidermolysis bullosa is extremely rare. We describe a neonate with this rare disease having multiple other anomalies.
