Ichthyoses


Group of disorders characterized by a persistent scaling disorder of the skin surface. The term derives from a likeness of the skin surface to fish skin. Some of these diseases are accompanied by erythema and appear inflamed. Most are inherited, but very similar scaling disorders may occur secondarily to a systemic disease or metabolic abnormality (acquired ichthyosis).
