Answer

Major complications of aplasia cutis congenita (ACC) are rare but include hemorrhage, secondary local infection, meningitis, or sagittal sinus thrombosis.

Larger lesions associated with underlying bony defects may result in death secondary to central nervous system infection or hemorrhage from the sagittal sinus.
