This report describes a healthy infant born with an isolated, truncal cutis aplasia defect in association with a fetus papyraceous. Effective healing of the cutaneous defect occurred over the course of a month. A 2-year follow-up demonstrate stable wound coverage. This rare association of aplasia cutis congenita, with a fetus papyraceous points most likely to the vascular causation of the cutaneous defect.
