Abstract

ACC is a rare condition that has to be approached by a multidisciplinary team, including a pediatrician, dermatologist, and plastic surgeon. Associated malformations should be ruled out in a patient with ACC, and conservative management is usually the mainstay of treatment. Antibiotic therapy is not used routinely unless lesions are infected.
