Ichthyosis

“The ichthyoses are a heterogeneous group of inherited scaling skin disorders that can also affect other organs. They are rare genetic dermatologic diseases that are characterized by dry, thickened, scaling skin. Ichthyosis affects more than one million Americans and can cause devastating disfiguring disease with numerous physical, social and emotional sequalae. Ichthyosis is the result of a genetic mutation. There is no cure, only treatments to help manage the symptoms. “Ichthy” is taken from the Greek root for “fish” so ichthyosis literally means fish disease, characterizing the scales and plaques formed by the abnormal turnover of the epidermis.” (Fleck, Study # LIT 464)
