Iatrogenic cutaneous injuries in the neonate

Aryeh Metzker, Sarah Brenner, Paul Merlob

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Background: Iatrogenic cutaneous injuries of the neonate have decreased in umber in the last 30 years because of changes in the medical procedures during thee prenatal, perinatal, and postnatal periods. Observations: The emergence of such cutaneous injuries derived from the use of instruments, blunt and sharp, from manual manipulations, from medications, and from hesitation or abstaining from intervention. Conclusion: The dermatologist, unfamiliar with handling of neonates in the nursery, should be capable of recognizing and dealing with these phenomena when encountered in the acute stage or with their residue.
