Sclerema neonatorum is a rare and severe skin condition that is characterized by diffuse hardening of the subcutaneous tissue with minimal inflammation.[1][2] It usually affects premature, ill newborns. Prognosis is poor.

Minimal inflammation helps distinguish sclerema neonaturum from subcutaneous fat necrosis of the newborn.
