AT 38 WEEKS of an uncomplicated gestation, a white male infant was born via a second cesarean section to a 26-year-old, gravida 4, para 1, white woman. The infant was the product of healthy, unrelated parents with no history of any familial diseases or major congenital anomalies. The birth weight of the infant was 3370 g and the Apgar scores were 9/9 at 1 and 5 minutes, respectively. The only abnormal physical findings were the several skin lesions on the abdomen, back, and the lower extremities (Figure 1). Results of skin biopsy specimen are also shown (Figure 2).
