Lamellar ichthyosis

John L. Bezzant, M.D.

Lamellar ichthyosis. The abnormal stratum corneum has produced what appears as very thick scale on the skin, and with an abnormal barrier layer these patients commonly get secondary staphylococcal and yeast infections. Note that there are other associated ectodermal problems such as the teeth, hair, and eyelids.
