Ichthyosis is a broad and loosely defined group of hereditary and acquired disorders characterized by filaggrin dysfunction and impaired epidermal homeostasis that results in dry, scaly and thickened skin. Individuals with truncation mutations in the profilaggrin gene coding for filaggrin are strongly predisposed to severe forms of ichthyosis. The phenotypical expression of ichthyosis caused by the same genotypical mutation can vary considerably in severity and in regards to how much constricting scar tissue develops. Read More

The expression of the 27-kd heat shock protein in keratinization disorders: an immunohistological study.

Hum Pathol 2005 Jun;36(6):686-93

Department of Dermatology, Medical University of Vienna, Vienna, Austria.

In human skin, the 27-kd heat shock protein (hsp27), a member of the small hsp family, is expressed mainly in the upper epidermal layers. Hsp27 functions as a molecular chaperone and is involved in the regulation of cell growth and differentiation. According to experimental evidence, epidermal hsp27, through its chaperone function, might play a role in the assembly of keratin filaments and the cornified cell envelope. Read More

Ichthyosis: etiology, diagnosis, and management.

Am J Clin Dermatol 2003 ;4(2):81-95

Division of Dermatopharmacology, Brown Medical School and Rhode Island Hospital, Providence 02903, USA.

The ichthyoses are a heterogeneous group of disorders with both inherited and acquired forms. Clinical presentation, pattern of inheritance, and laboratory evaluation may establish a precise diagnosis, which can assist in prognosis and genetic counseling. Congenital autosomal recessive ichthyosis (CARI) usually presents at birth, often as a collodion baby. Read More
