Abstract

We report a case of Subcutaneous Fat Necrosis (SCFN) of a newborn which is an uncommon disorder, occurs during the first year of life, and has been attributed to perinatal stress. SCFN usually has a favorable prognosis, with complete autoresolution of subcutaneous lesions within several weeks or months, but it may also be complicated by serious metabolic alterations such as hypercalcemia.
