Facial Bruising

This is another example of facial bruising. Here again the face appears to be cyanotic (including the lips), but the tongue and the rest of the body had a normal pink color. On careful examination, petechiae where also noted across the forehead. This is another manifestation of bruising in a newborn; no further evaluation is needed.
