A boy with a lipid storage disease characterized by lamellar ichthyosis, cataracts, hepatosplenomegaly, and leukocyte vacuoles has been identified in a Sicilian family. This patient shows all the characteristics of ichthyosis and neutral lipid storage disease (Chanarin-Dorfman syndrome). Family data confirm an autosomal recessive inheritance; the heterozygotes may be detected by the presence of vacuoles in circulating eosinophils.
