The ichthyoses represent a large heterogeneous group of Mendelian disorders of keratinization (cornification), clinically characterized by the presence of scales on the skin. They may manifest at birth or later on, and they could be isolated or associated with extracutaneous anomalies. The choice of treatment depends on the type of ichthyoses, age of the patient, the involved areas, and the extent of the disease.
