Aplasia cutis congenita or congenital absence of the skin is a rare and serious congenital disease; its etiopathogenesis remains unclear. In this condition, localized or widespread areas of skin are absent at birth. A newborn suffering from an unusual aplasia cutis congenita located asymmetrically on the nonscalp, without blistering, was presented. This patient was completely healed with conservative treatment.
