Autosomal Syndromic Ichthyosis

KID syndrome

  • Beginning: Birth.
  • Clinical picture: Severe.
  • Syndromic: It does affect other organs.

It is a rare disease, characterized by keratitis, ichthyosis and deafness (sensorineural).

These patients have the peculiarity that treatment with oral retinoids has been of little benefit to them and it even seems that it has increased neovascularization (new blood vessels in the cornea), worsening the ocular disease.
