Harlequin-type ichthyosis is a genetic disorder which results in thickened skin over nearly the Synonyms, Harlequin ichthyosis, hyosis fetalis, keratosis diffusa fetalis, harlequin fetus ichthyosis congenita gravior. Harlequin Autosomal recessive congenital ichthyosis (ARCI) encompasses several forms of nonsyndromic ichthyosis. Although most neonates with ARCI.

Genotypic and clinical spectrum of self-improving collodion ichthyosis: Genetic counseling is the process of providing individuals and families with information on the nature, inheritance, and implications of genetic disorders to help them make informed medical and personal decisions. Mutations in CERS3 cause autosomal recessive congenital ichthyosis in humans.

Nomenclature Historically, the term “lamellar ichthyosis” was used to describe any individual with ARCI, and even rare cases of autosomal dominant ichthyosis, regardless of whether erythroderma was present.

A year-old proband from Germany and his affected brother had a variable course, presenting with a bathing suit distribution in infancy but developing a tendency towards more generalized and rather mild ichthyosis. Biochemical and ultrastructural abnormalities have suggested genetic heterogeneity and division into 3 subtypes of harlequin ichthyosis Dale et al.

Ictiosis congenita: Presentación clínico-patológica de 4 casos

In some instances, genetic testing may be helpful in making a diagnosis. Mutations in lipid transporter ABCA12 in harlequin ichthyosis and functional recovery by corrective gene transfer.

There is typically a pregnancy history of polyhydramnios and fetal ultrasound may reveal echogenic sediment in the amniotic fluid.

Because it is likely that testing methodology and our understanding of genes, allelic variants, and diseases will improve in the future, consideration should be given to banking DNA of affected individuals. Archived from the original on October 14, It made a strange kind of noise, very low, which I cannot describe. Epidermolytic hyperkeratosis bullous ichthyosis, bCIE. Family history revealed that an older sister with ichthyosis had died at 1 week of age of unknown cause. Although his weight gain was poor, with weight remaining below the third percentile, at the age of 18 months he was alert, able to make cooing and babbling sounds, and had normal hearing and vision.

Harlequin ichthyosis is characterized by a thick, taut body armor-like covering that severely restricts movement and results in deformities of the face, head, and extremities. Only comments written in English can be processed.

Pathogenic variants in three genes have been identified as causing hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia: Antenatal diagnosis Prenatal diagnosis is mandatory and consists in DNA analysis of amniocentesis and chorion villus sampling materials, rather than fetal skin biopsies. SDR9C7 Three consanguineous Lebanese families were reported with a homozygous missense variant in this gene in all affected probands [ Shigehara et al ].

Costello syndrome Kindler syndrome Laryngoonychocutaneous syndrome Skin fragility syndrome. For a general phenotypic description and a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of autosomal recessive congenital ichthyosis, see ARCI1 The experience of Holbrook et al. The most common mutation was an A-to-G transition in intron 5 Genetic disordermembrane: Autosomal Recessive Congenital Ichthyosis: To date, all reported pathogenic variants have either 1 resulted in a truncated protein product, 2 altered residues that are conserved among the family of transglutaminases both within and across species, or 3 been absent in a large series of control samples, thus confirming that all reported variants are pathogenic variants and not polymorphisms.

The diagnosis of nonsyndromic ARCI is established by skin findings at birth and in infancy. Spectrum of autosomal recessive congenital ichthyosis in Scandinavia: Mutations in ABCA12 underlie the severe congenital skin disease harlequin ichthyosis. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Retrieved 18 July The infants were covered with an enormous horny shell, similar to armor, with deep creases which fragmented the hard surface into large polygonal plates.

FATP4 null mice have a greatly thickened skin, impaired skin barrier properties, and breathing problems secondary to their tight, restrictive skin. The majority are single-base changes; rarely, insertions or deletions are found. The neonate with lamellar ichthyosis presents at birth with a collodion-like membrane encasing the neonate; the skin later develops large, brown, platelike scales covering the entire body Williams and Elias, Nonbullous congenital ichthyosiform erythroderma CIE.


Plaques, measuring up to 4 or 5 cm on a side, have a diamond-like configuration resembling the suit of a harlequin clown. It is characterized by severe scaling, especially on the extremities, and is associated with steroid sulfatase deficiency. The diagnosis of ARCI is established in a proband typically an infant:.


Hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia is characterized by sparseness of scalp and body hair, reduced ability to sweat, and congenital absence of teeth. In individuals with ichthyosis-prematurity syndrome, molecular genetic testing should start with SLC27A4. Jacyk proposed the term ‘bathing suit ichthyosis’ for this condition.

Archived copy as title Infobox medical condition new RTT. Ultrasonography shows diffuse scaling, digital contractures, flattened rudimentary external ear, nasal hypoplasia, everted eyelids, congenjta fish mouth, open fetal mouth, and congentia. At 2 months of age, both infants developed large thick brown scales covering nearly the entire integument, sparing only the face and flexural surfaces.

The membrane was spontaneously shed after 2 to 4 weeks, exposing almost normal-appearing skin.

Ichthyosis, congenital, autosomal recessive 7. Temtamy described a family ictiossi 3 affected sibs and first-cousin parents; the eyes were bulging in the infants and congeita typically characteristic feature was markedly hypoplastic fingers. ABCA12 is thought to be a lipid transporter in keratinocytes necessary for lipid transport into lamellar granules during the formation of the lipid barrier. Her research laboratory has elucidated the molecular basis of numerous inherited ichthyoses and other skin disorders and she has contributed to more than scientific publications, review articles, and book chapters.

Click here pdf for further information on some of the genes included in the table. The disease affects all ethnic and racial groups and is seen in higher frequency in populations in which consanguineous marriage is common.

Carrier testing for at-risk relatives and prenatal testing for pregnancies at increased risk are possible if both ARCI-related pathogenic variants have been identified in a family.
