Epidermolytic ichthyosis is a rare genetic disorder characterized by diffuse erythroderma from the time of birth with subsequent appearance of thick, brown scales and occasional blister formation. Mutation has been found in keratin 1 (K1) and keratin 10 (K10) genes.1 Epidermolytic hyperkeratosis (EHK) is mostly inherited in a dominant mode. We report a Chinese family of EHK sufferers and their mutation findings.
