SUBCUTANEOUS FAT NECROSIS OF THE NEWBORN: CLINICAL CASE
Abstract: A rare case of SCFN was diagnosed in a newborn, a rare disease in the neonatal period, emphasizes the importance of a histological findings for a definitive diagnosis. Subcutaneous fat necrosis of the newborn (SCFN) is an uncommon panniculitis of neonates. Although SCFN is a self-limited condition, recognition of this entity is important, as affected infants require monitoring for associated hypercalcemia or other complications. SCFN generally has a good outcome, with spontaneous resolution of skin lesions over weeks to months. However, death from hypercalcemia has been reported in a few infants with SCFN.
