Other Forms

Erythroderma variabilis

  • Beginning: Birth / Lactation.
  • Clinical picture: Moderate.
  • Non-syndromic: Does not affect other organs besides the skin.

It is a very rare variant of ichthyosis with a prevalence of less than 1 in every 2,000,000 births.

The distinctive sign of erythroderma variabilis is the coexistence of transient erythematous areas that affect any area of the skin and thickening brown skin plaques that form on the extremities, buttocks, and trunk, in a more stable manner.

The face, scalp, and flexion areas are not usually affected by hyperkeratosis.
