Abstract:

Carbon baby syndrome, also known as universal acquired melanosis is one of the causes of diffuse hyperpigmentation of skin and mucosa with only a limited number of cases reported in the literature. Here we report a case of 11 month old female child of universal acquired melanosis. Increased pigmentation as noticed by the parents started over the face, which then gradually progressed over next 4-5 months to involve the whole body. Clinically the case was diagnosed as carbon baby syndrome, thus being reported because of its rarity.


Key words: Carbon baby, Universal Acquired Melanosis
