Infantile perineal protrusion: case report.

Author information

  • 1Dutchess County Medical Examiner's Office, Poughkeepsie, New York, USA.


Infantile perineal protrusion is a recently described dermatologic entity that resembles a skin tag and can be confused with evidence of sexual child abuse. Although well-described by the pediatric and dermatologic community in small case series and case reports, we found little reference to this abnormality in the forensic literature despite its medicolegal significance. Therefore, we present a case of a 3-month-old infant who had a representative example of this lesion.
