After having diagnosed Human immunodeficiency virus infection, the mother took antiretroviral agents during pregnancy and all other antenatal test results were within normal range. Right after birth, a skin defect on the newborn's vertex scalp was detected which was diagnosed as Aplasia cutis congenita. We report a case with a literature review.
