Ichthyosis is a heterogeneous family of more than 30, generalized, mostly genetic skin disorders. The word comes from Greek ιχθύωση and Ancient Greek ιχθύς, „fish“. The most common type of ichthyosis is ichthyosis vulgaris accounting for >95% of the cases.
There can be ocular manifestations of ichthyosis, such as corneal and ocular surface diseases. Vascularizing keratitis, which is more commonly found in congenital keratitis-ichythosis-deafness (KID), may worsen with isotretinoin therapy. Ectropion, if it occurs, can be treated surgically after skin hydration.
