When Should Cutis Aplasia be Worked Up?
Discussion Aplasia cutis congenita (aka cutis aplasia, CA) is an uncommon dermal defect that is usually noted at birth or soon after birth. A variable amount of dermal tissue is absent. It is usually an isolated defect. The actual causes are unknown but genetics, developmental and destructive forces are logically the cause. Developmental forces do not allow the appropriate formation and closure of the skin (example would be a syndrome) and destructive forces (such as amniotic bands) harm the tissue so that it is disrupted. On physical examination CA may look like a small hypertrophic or atrophic scar. It can also be covere...

The breast is formed starting around the 6th week of gestation by breast buds along the mammary line. Breasts then develop from the downgrowth of epithelia into the mesenchymal tissue, which continues to grow. Around 8-9 months a pit forms as entry into the lactiferous ducts. “Nipple inversion is caused either by failure of the lactiferous ducts to develop and grow during matur...
