Figure 1.12. Marked desquamation of the skin in a post-term infant. This is a benign physiologic desquamation widi paper-thin peeling; the underlying skin is normal. It occurs with postmaturity as the vernix disappears and the skin of the fetus is not protected from the amniotic fluid. The process is more marked in areas of irritation.
