Aplasia cutis congenita is a rare disorder, which presents with congenital absence of skin. Besides isolated presentation, it may manifest with other developmental malformation of cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, genitourinary and central nervous systems, and malformation syndromes such as chromosomal abnormalities, Adams-Oliver syndrome, Bart's syndrome, and Johanson-Bilzzard syndrome. Here, we present two cases of aplasia cutis congenita, which represent two different types of the disease. The first case presented as non-syndromic aplasia cutis congenita of scalp, and the other case presented as a part of Bart's syndrome.
