    Aplasia cutis congenita is a heterogeneous group of conditions usually involving the scalp as well as any other part of the body and is associated with a number of other congenital anomalies. We report on a newborn male with almost complete absence of skin and subcutaneous tissue in association with choanal atresia, syndactyly, imperforate anus, pulmonary hypoplasia, and other anomalies. To our knowledge, this condition, not only in the extent of the lesion but the associated anomalies, has not been reported previously.
