Abstract

Heterotopic glial nodules are rare congenital cutaneous lesions; only 13 cases of scalp localized lesions of this kind are reported in the English medical literature. Herpes simplex virus is a rare cause of neonatal morbidity and mortality and is a rare cause of intrauterine infection. We report the first case of concurrent presence of a heterotopic glial nodule of the scalp and neonatal, in utero-acquired, fatal herpes simplex virus type-2 infection.
