2221 consecutive live births taking place between March 1994 and February 1995 were evaluated for a minimum period of 5 days to note for the occurrence of various normal anatomical variants specially those of skin. Birth weight, gestational age, maternal age, socio-economic status and consanguinity were carefully recorded in all the cases. Mongolian spots (72%), Epstein pearls (43.8%), Milia (26.2%), and Erythema toxicum (25.2%),were the common dermatological variants noted. Maturity of the babies and possibly genetic factors (consanguinity) are important factors in their causation as observed in our study.
