Medical Challenge


 I couldn't resist this challenge from the New England Journal of Medicine.  Make your best guess in the comment section and answer will be posted tomorrow.  One hint:  The newborn baby doesn't have any IV's or tubes inserted. (click on the image for a close up). 

Any neonatal specialists out there?

1. Bullous ichthyosiform erythroderma
2. Collodion baby
3. Cutis Marmorata
4. Harlequin color change
5. Staphylococcal pyoderma

Think I'm going to guess Harlequin color change even though it has crossed the midline on the lower extremities. That's my guess and I'm sticking to it. :) Remotely remembering some badness associate with the Harlequin color change. . . hmmmm. . . .
