NIH Rare Diseases:42 Aplasia cutis congenita¬†is a condition in which there is congenital (present from birth) absence of skin, with or without the absence of underlying structures such as bone. it most commonly affects the scalp, but any location of the body can be affected. while most people with aplasia cutis congenita have no other abnormalities, some people have congenital malformations involving the cardiovascular (heart), gastrointestinal, genitourinary, and central nervous systems.¬†the¬†cause of this¬†condition is unclear and appears to be multifactorial (many different factors appear to play a role); contributing factors may include¬†teratogens, genes, trauma, and compromised skin perfusion.¬† last updated: 3/22/2010
MalaCards based summary: Aplasia Cutis Congenita, also known as scalp defect congenital, is related to adams-oliver syndrome 1 and adams oliver syndrome, and has symptoms including scalp/skull defect, skin hypoplasia/aplasia/atrophy and neural tube defect. An important gene associated with Aplasia Cutis Congenita is BMS1 (BMS1 ribosome biogenesis factor), and among its related pathways are Reelin Pathway (Cajal-Retzius cells) and G protein signaling Regulation of CDC42 activity. Affiliated tissues include skin, bone and heart, and related mouse phenotype reproductive system.
Genetics Home Reference:21 Nonsyndromic aplasia cutis congenita is a condition in which babies are born with localized areas of missing skin (lesions). These areas resemble ulcers or open wounds, although they are sometimes already healed at birth. Lesions most commonly occur on the top of the head (skull vertex), although they can be found on the torso or limbs. In some cases, the bone and other tissues under the skin defect are also underdeveloped.
