I saw these slate-like coloration in neonatal chikungunya infection

Was there an epidemic of chikungunya at this period in your setting ?

It seems that the hyperpigmentation interest periorificial sites and lobes of the ears.

You can screen for CHIKV infection (perhaps IgM if too late for RT-PCR), specially if these newborns have been febrile...

Maternal-fetal transmission has been described with febrile mothers during the peripartum period with onset of disease in neonates after some days.
