Figure 1.77. This infant has redundancy of the skin in die neck which was present at birdi. It was related to die infant's position in utero in diat the head was flexed on the right upper chest, resulting in the tight skin. There may be a small amount of redundant skin in the neck normally, but when there is enough to cause visible folds or webs on the lateral neck, prenatal edema in the region is almost certain to be the cause. Extensive redundancy of neck skin is seen in a number of dysmorphic conditions (e.g., Turner's and Noonan's syndromes). Once localized skin growth has taken place, it does not easily reconstitute itself if the distending forces are removed.
