Abstract Incontinentia Pigmenti. Presented by Dr. David Taylor, Fresno. M. S., a 3½-month-old white infant girl developed an eruption, which the mother describes as measles, about two weeks after birth. This eruption disappeared in a week, and shortly thereafter brown linear whorls and streaks of hyperpigmentation appeared on her trunk and all four extremities with the most pronounced involvement on the right side. This was approximately in the same distribution as the eruption which was described as measles. A few weeks later, a verrucous brown area was observed on the left eyebrow. This lesion has disappeared, but the other areas of hyperpigmentation have remained unchanged. There have been no new lesions recently. The mother states that she had no illnesses of any type during her pregnancy except for a mild pyelitis during the third trimester which promptly responded to Terramycin. The delivery was normal and uncomplicated. Twenty-four hours after delivery http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png A.M.A. Archives of Dermatology American Medical Association
