Congenital Icthyosis

Congenital Ichthyosis (CI) is a group of rare genetic keratinization disorders that leads to dry, thickened, and scaling skin.


Most cases of ichthyosis are inherited, but some types develop in association with genetic syndromes or diseases, such as Hodgkin's Lymphoma.

People living with CI may have limited range of motion, chronic itching, an inability to sweat normally, high risk of secondary infections, and impaired eyesight or hearing. CI affects about 80,000 people in the U.S. and more than 1.5 million globally.
