ABSTRACT

We performed a prospective study of 1,000 neonates investigated in the first 72 hours of life in the Health Area of Ferrol (northwest of Spain), in order to assess the prevalence of hyperpigmentation of the genital area, the influence of different maternal and neonatal parameters, day of neonatal exploration and type of delivery. Overall frequency of hyperpigmentation was 15.3%. We found a higher prevalence of this dermatosis in non-Caucasian infants (p = 0.000) of male sex (p = 0.000), with Mongolian spot (p = 0.000), vaginal delivery (p = 0.030), maternal age below 30 years (p = 0.006) and at least two previous pregnancies (p = 0.015).


Key words: epidemiology, predisposing factors, hyperpigmentation of the genital area, congenital adrenal hyperplasia, transient skin lesion, bithmark, neonate, miniature puberty, newborn.
