A 2-month-old boy with an important hardening of the skin in the pubic and genital regions is presented. He was born prematurely at 31 weeks of gestation, and required a respirator during the first 72 h. The analytical explorations and abdominal ultrasound images were normal. Histological study had not shown significant changes. The patient did not receive any treatment and gradually experienced remission. Because of the location and spontaneous regression in a few months, the picture is very similar to the one described by Degos as 'Scléroedème génito-sus-pubien' of the newborn.
