Aplasia cutis congenita is a condition in which people are born without skin (and thus hair) in specific parts of the body, frequently but not always on the scalp. The arms, trunk, and legs could all be implicated in some instances.
At times, the underlying bone as well as the skin may be lacking. Therefore, a transparent, thin membrane is often used to substitute the impaired areas. In some scenarios, these afflicted organs could be visible via the transparent membrane.
The majority of people who have aplasia cutis congenita have no further problems. Nevertheless, in rare instances, they might have other physical traits, such as deformities of the ears, a type of paralysis influencing one part of the face, an excessively big head, and congenital heart defects.
Moreover, it can be a symptom of a variety of different conditions, including Johanson-Blizzard Syndrome, Aplasia Cutis Congenita-Gastrointestinal, and Adams-Oliver Syndrome.
