congenita (ACC) (OMIM 107600) is another rare anomaly with congenital localized absence of skin usually on the scalp.1 The skin appears as a thin, transparent membrane through which the underlying structures are visible.
congenita is "rarely on the trunk or extremities, though this can happen anywhere," he said.

Occasionally mistaken for fetal scalp monitor trauma, neonatal herpes simplex infection, or a nevus sebaceus of Jadassohn, this characteristic pattern--a collar of coarse hair surrounding an area of membranous aplasia cutis
congenita--can be a marker for cranial dysraphism, a developmental defect of the skull potentially associated with structural neurologic defects.

INTRODUCTION: Aplasia Cutis
Congenita (ACC) is a rare anomaly characterized by absence of portion of skin over localized or widespread area.
Results In our study, major causes of cicatricial alopecia were lichen planopilaris (27.5%), discoid lupus erythematosus (25%), pseudopelade of Brocq (20%), systemic lupus erythematosus (5%) followed by scleroderma, dermatomyositis, keratosis follicularis spinulosa decalvans, aplasia cutis
, kerion, follicular mucinosis, pemphigus, dissecting cellulitis of scalp/ pyogenic folliculitis and acne keloidalis nuchae in 2.5% cases each.
