    Sclerema neonatorum--histopathologic study.

    Department of Pathology, R.G. Kar Medical College, Calcutta.
    Histopathological study of 10 cases sclerema neonatorum showed subcutaneous fibrosis with lobulation in all the cases. 8 (80 percent) cases showed non-specific chronic inflammation of dermis and thinning of epidermis with atrophy of rete pegs and hypercollgenisation of dermis was evident in 70 percent cases. Fat necrosis with crystallisation of fat content was not a conspicuous feature.

    Sclerema neonatorum associated with systemic fibrosis and endocardial fibroelastosis.
    Acta Pathol Jpn 1977 Nov;27(6):917-25
    A female newborn infant whose illness was diagnosed as sclerema edematosum on the basis of diffuse edematous skin induration having rapidly occurred until her death on the third day of life, was pathologically investigated. Autopsy revealed notable interstitial fibrosis of the subcuteneous adipose tissue, variable increases of fibrous connective tissue in various visceral organs, particularly prominent in the alimentary tract, as well as endocardial fibroelastosis of the heart. Although the skin lesion is similar to that of sclerema neonatorum presented by HUGHES et al. Read More
