Abstract

Bart syndrome is classified as type VI aplasia cutis congenita, presented clinically by absence of skin, nail malformation and epidermolysis bullosa [2]. It is a rare familial disease [1]. The exact incidence is unknown but estimated to be 1-2 in 10000 births [8]. Here we present a case of female newborn born with absent skin diagnosed clinically and managed by skin care, well followed up with complete healing.
