  Abstract 

The rapidly adapting neonatal skin, being anatomically and physiologically distinct from that of an adult, may exhibit a variety of entities ranging from mild and/or self-limiting ones to the severe and/or life-threatening. However, their occurrence makes the parents/caregivers disconsolate. We carried out an exhaustive literature search using Medline, Embase, EBSCO and Cochrane library in order to review and incorporate recent knowledge in the salient features of these entities, so as to facilitate their rapid screening by the busy clinicians. However, neither a comprehensive classification nor adequate information at a single source was available but was scattered sketchily among the description of adult disorders in the common dermatology textbooks.

Keywords: Classification neonatal dermatoses, genodermatoses and naevi, neonatal entities, physiological neonatal dermatological entities
