Michelin tire baby syndrome (MTBS) is one of the rare genodermatosis that is characterized by phenotypic abnormalities and multiple symmetric circumferential folding of excess skin. Diagnosis is done mainly through clinical examination. Skin fold gradually diminishes and fades away with age without any clinical intervention. Here, we are reporting a case of MTBS in a newborn.
