Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Transient alterations in pigmentation are frequently observed in black neonates, but to our knowledge, have not previously been reported in Caucasian infants. In 54 Caucasian newborns, we found at least mild periungual hyperpigmentation similar to the variation in coloration in the periungual region of many black newborns. This pigmentation should be added to the transient benign dermatoses of Caucasian infants.
