Abstract

A case of distal falangeal hyperpigmentation in a 2-month female newborn, who did not show any other cutaneous disease at the time of our observation, is presented. The aim of our study is to focus attention on this condition, actually considered a benign, asymptomatic, transitory manifestation, rarely reported in literature. On the basis of the clinical features, it has been proposed to add this pigmentation to the transient benign dermatoses of newborns.
