One of the major medical concerns in neonates is their vulnerability to life-threatening complications. Early diagnosis of potentially serious medical conditions is essential in prevention of such complication by prompt administration of appropriate treatments. Recognition of cutaneous manisfestations of potentially fatal diseases may assist a clinician in management of newborns. To overview the full spectrum of this category of conditions, Medline® search was performed for cases of cutaneous manifestations associated with mortality during the first month of live that were published in the English language literature since 1977. This is a concise review of the clinical aspects of most of the potentially life-threatening disorders in neonates divided by basic morphology of their cutaneous manisfestations.
