The teratogenicity of vitamin A has been repeatedly reported in the literature and confirmed on the basis of several cases of adverse pregnancy outcome associated with maternal isotretinoin exposure. We report a case which shows a striking similarity with this syndrome, but the child was born to a mother who took a normal supplementation of vitamin A during pregnancy. The differential diagnosis is discussed.
