CORREA, Mariane; ZANIBONI, Mariana Colombini; YPIRANGA, Sylvia  and  ARRUDA, Lúcia Helena Favaro de. Case for diagnosis. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2008, vol.83, n.3, pp. 269-270. ISSN 1806-4841.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962008000300013.

Subcutaneous fat necrosis of the newborn is an uncommon self-limited panniculitis characterized by large erythematous patches and soft nodules on the back of full-term or post-term infants. Maternal pre-eclampsia, birth asphyxia and hypercalcemia are relevant triggers. We describe a case of subcutaneous fat necrosis in a newborn related to maternal pre-eclampsia and birth asphyxia.

Keywords : Fat necrosis; Newborn; Panniculitis.
