Ichthyosis

Our expert dermatologists at Aura help relieve conditions of dryness and ease scaliness caused by Ichthyosis.

Key features

• Ichthyoses and erythrokeratodermas are clinically and etiologically heterogeneous groups of disorders of cornification 
.

• Ichthyoses (Greek ‘ichthys’ meaning fish) are characterized by generalized scaling of the skin 
.

• Erythrokeratodermas are discernible by erythema and hyperkeratosis, predominantly focal and without apparent scale

• Most inherited ichthyoses and erythrokeratodermas are present at birth or manifest in the neonatal period 
.

• Clinical features, inheritance, and structural, biochemical and molecular abnormalities help to differentiate these disorders 
.

• Therapy is symptomatic and primarily aimed at reducing hyperkeratosis. Topical. management consists of emollients, keratolytics and retinoids 
.

• Many, but not all, disorders respond well to oral retinoids. Treatment is initiated at low doses and titrated to response. Benefits and side effects must be carefully considered, because long-term therapy is required
