What is Ichthyosis?
Ichthyosis is an inherited skin disorder which may run in families, in which the skin is rough and looks like fish scales. It may be obvious at birth or become apparent a few weeks later. In mild cases it involves just a very dry skin; in severe cases the skin is a mass of loose scales which fall off when dressing and can be shaken off clothing.
