Answer

A rare bullous variant of aplasia cutis congenita, manifesting as a tense yellow vesicle or cyst on the scalp, has been reported. However, it is usually seen after the bullae have absorbed, leaving a flat scar. Some authors thus equate the terms "bullous" and "membranous."

A complete physical examination should be performed to search for associated physical anomalies or recognizable malformation syndromes.
