Department of Pediatrics, University of Calgary, Alberta, Canada.


Eight hundred eight Caucasian newborn term infants (440 males, 368 females) and 1575 Caucasian children (806 males, 769 females) were examined for the presence of salmon patches. The patches were present in 43.6% of males and 43.8% of females in the immediate neonatal period. They were not detected in boys after age 6 and in girls after age 5 years. The most frequent site was the nape, followed by the glabellum, eyelids, nose, and upper lip.
