Skin Loose Dow – Doughlike

Please click to enlarge.

Note what signs you see.

I (W. Wertelecki, M.D.) see a sketch of the previously posted photograph of this infant with dough (dow) like skin (on palpation the skin feels like soft rubber but is not hyperelastic – the skin folds are excessive and sagging). For further comments, see previous post.

PERSPECTIVE: If you are interested in viewing a complete clinical report of this first observation in humans, please view a video.
