Abstract

A Chinese infant boy had extensive Mongolian spots in the occipital, gluteal, sacrococcygeal, and lumbar areas. The occurrence of a Mongolian spot in the scalp area has not been previously reported. Awareness of such an occurrence is important so that a false accusation of child abuse is not made.
