This study aimed to describe a case of aplasia cutis congenita with epidermolysis bullosa, as only a few reports of Bartís syndrome exist in the medical literature. Aplasia cutis congenita (ACC) is a rare dermatological condition characterized by the absence of skin. It has no proven etiology and hence stills remains a mystery for the dermatologist of the modern world. The most common body part affected is the scalp. ACC with epidermolysis bullosa (Bartís syndrome) is a very rare variant of aplasia cutis.Keywords: Aplasia cutis congenita, Bartís syndrome, epidermolysis bullosa, neonate, type VII collagen (COL7A1)
