Sclerema neonatorum (SN) is a rare condition with high mortality, usually prevalent in preterm newborns. SN is an infant panniculitis, in which adherence of skin, subcutaneous tissues with underlying muscles, and bones are seen. SN is more common among preterm newborns with high sepsis and the survival of the infants diagnosed with SN was very low. In this case report, we are presenting a case of SN in a preterm baby associated with early-onset neonatal sepsis.
