Abstract

Summary Perianal dermatitis is a commonskin affection in the neonatal period. In a study carried out over a 2-year period on 1,505 infants fed two evaporated milk preparations, 107 cases of perianal dermatitis were observed, an incidence of 7.1 per cent. In different nurseries and at different times, feeding of the same formula was followed by a sharply varying incidence in appearance of the condition. Data obtained from measurements of the pH of the stools in 434 cases failed to support the thesis that fecal alkalinity is a major factor in the genesis of perianal dermatitis.
