Harlequin Ichthyosis: a rare congenital dermatological disorder

Charu Sharma, Tapan K. Bhattacharyya, Abhishek Bhardwaj, Manju Mehrotra.

Harlequin Ichthyosis is the most severe form of congenital Ichthyosis presenting at birth. It is a very rare disorder with autosomal recessive inheritance. Perinatal mortality is high and the survivors develop severe erythroderma subsequently. We report a case of Harlequin Ichthyosis not only because of its rarity but also its tendency to occur in consecutive pregnancies.

Key words: Harlequin, Ichthyosis, Skin biopsy, Prenatal diagnosis, Consanguineous
