BACKGROUND: Epidermal necrosis in a neonate is an uncommon event with a variety of potential cases. RESULT: We report a case of intrauterine epidermal necrosis in a preterm infant, with death occurring soon after birth. The histopathology of the denuded skin revealed full-thickness epidermal necrosis and calcification within both the epidermis and follicular structures. CONCLUSION: We believe this represents the fourth reported case of lethal intrauterine epidermal necrosis and follicular calcification.
