A rare inherited skin condition known as ichthyosis lamellar manifests at the birth of a child.
- Ichthyosis lamellar is one of the three autosomal recessive congenital ichthyoses, which are inherited skin conditions (ARCI). The other two are referred to as congenital ichthyosiform erythroderma and harlequin ichthyosis.
- The clinical spectrum is the term used to describe all ARCI conditions. The symptoms of several ARCI diseases overlap.
- The body produces skin cells normally in ichthyosis lamellar. But they don't separate from one another at the skin's surface as they ought to.
- Brown scales also develop because the body does not shed the skin at a fast enough rate.
- The damaging alterations that lead to ichthyosis lamellar are inherited in a recessive manner.
- When a person inherits a dysfunctional gene from each parent, they develop recessive genetic diseases.
- An individual will be a carrier of the disease if they have one working gene and one non-working gene for it, but they often won't exhibit any symptoms.
- Ichthyosis is a sign of different medical diseases. However, a lot of these illnesses are syndromic and have other symptoms unrelated to skin problems.
- Cognitive impairments, neurological system issues, and arm/leg shortening are a few of these symptoms.
