Answer

This is aplasia cutis congenita associated with fetus papyraceous or placental infarct. [32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38] Fetus papyraceous is found at the time of delivery and results from the death of a twin fetus in the late first or early second trimester. The surviving fetus is affected with extensive truncal and limb aplasia cutis congenita in a linear or stellate configuration but is usually otherwise normal.
