The term ichthyosis is derived from the Greek word ichthys, which means fish. Ichthyosis is not one disease but a group of disorders in which there is excess accumulation of epidermal cells resulting in the appearance of scales. Severity ranges from mild, asymptomatic to life threatening. There are a large number of types of ichthyosis; most are extremely rare. This condition tends to be worse in the dry, cold winter months and generally improve in the warmer, more humid months of summer. The most common type of ichthyosis is ichthyosis vulgaris which accounts for almost 95% of cases. Apart from ichthyosis vulgaris all other forms of ichthyosis are very rare. Ichthyosis vulgaris affects about 1:250 individuals. Ichthyosis occurs worldwide and affects people of all races. In addition to this there are many more types but only 3 others will be addressed here. They are lamellar, x-linked, and epidermolytic hyperkeratosis forms of ichthyosis. These conditions are inherited and are based on ...
Signs and symptoms of the following disorders may be like those of LI.. Ichthyoses are a group of disorders that cause scaly skin. People with ichthyosis have a build-up of large amounts of dead skin cells on the top layer of the skin. This build up can be caused by defects in various structures in the skin. Skin cells known as corneocytes make up the outer layer of the skin. These cells are surrounded by proteins that make the skin strong and flexible. Corneocytes are also surrounded by a fat-rich matrix that waterproofs the skin. Corneocytes are connected to each other by proteins. The breakdown of these proteins is important for skin shedding. You can think of the skin cells as bricks, while the surrounding matrix is the mortar holding the cells together. When any of these skin structures are not working, a person can have ichthyosis. (See Ichthyosis in the Rare Disease Database.). Congenital ichthyosiform erythroderma (sometimes called collodion baby, ichthyosis congenita, xeroderma, ...
Keratitis-Ichthyosis-Deafness (KID) syndrome (OMIM 148210) is a congenital ectodermal defect that consists of an atypical ichthyosiform erythroderma associated with congenital sensorineural deafness. KID appears to be genetically heterogeneous and most cases are caused by GJB2 mutations. Mutations in African patients have been rarely described. We report on two unrelated Cameroonian individuals affected with sporadic KID, presenting with the classic phenotypic triad. The two patients were heterozygous for the most frequent p.Asp50Asn mutation. This first report in patients from sub-Saharan African origin supports the hypothesis that the occurrence of KID due to p.Asp50Asn mutation in GJB2 seems not to be population specific. Our finding has implication in medical genetic practice, specifically in the molecular diagnosis of KID in Africans. These cases also reveal and emphasize the urgent need to develop appropriate policies to care for patients with rare/orphan diseases in Sub-Saharan Africa, as many of
Monogenic disorders, i.e., disorders caused by mutations in a single gene, are rare and clinically heterogeneous conditions. Identification of the genetic cause of monogenic traits can bring new insights into molecular pathways and disease mechanisms. The aims of the present study were to identify the mutant genes in two autosomal recessive skin disorders and to characterize the functions of the mutated genes. In order to identify candidate genes for the two disorders whole-genome SNP analysis, homozygosity mapping and gene sequencing were used.. Autosomal recessive congenital ichthyosis (ARCI) is a group of disorders characterized by extensive scaling and redness of the skin. A subgroup of ARCI patients (n=27) was selected based on specific ultrastructural aberrations in their skin, revealed by electron microscopy. Mutations were identified in the Ichthyin gene in 93% of the selected patients, indicating a strong association between mutant Ichthyin and the specific morphological abnormalities. ...
Autosomal recessive congenital ichthyosis (ARCI) is a rare genetically heterogeneous disorder characterized by hyperkeratosis in addition to dry, scaly skin. There are six genes currently known to be associated with the disease. Exome sequencing data for two affected individuals with ichthyosis from two apparently unrelated consanguineous Pakistani families was analysed. Potential candidate mutations were analysed in additional family members to determine if the putative mutation segregated with disease status. A novel mutation (c.G4676T, p.Gly1559Val) in |i|ABCA12|/i| occurred at a highly conserved residue, segregated with disease status in both families, and was not detected in 143 control chromosomes. Genotyping with microsatellite markers demonstrated a partial common haplotype in the two families, and a common founder mutation could not be excluded. Comparison to previously reported cases was consistent with the hypothesis that severe loss of function |i|ABCA12|/i| mutations are associated with

Mutations in connexin26 (Cx26) underlie a range of serious human pathologies. Previously we have shown that Cx26 hemichannels are directly opened by CO2 (Meigh et al., 2013). However the effects of human disease-causing mutations on the CO2 sensitivity of Cx26 are entirely unknown. Here, we report the first connection between the CO2 sensitivity of Cx26 and human pathology, by demonstrating that Cx26 hemichannels with the mutation A88V, linked to Keratitis-Ichthyosis-Deafness syndrome, are both CO2 insensitive and associated with disordered breathing in humans.. ...

The experience of therapeutic education in the management of children with ichthyosis seems important to share while publications are limited. The establishment of a TPE group which was constituted by health professionals seems mandatory because of a the strong sense of rejection expressed by the patients and their families, the impact on quality of life associated with the misunderstanding of the disease and the importance of multidisciplinary monitoring [10, 13].. In our study, we used a step-by-step approach. In brief, TPE group in close partnership with patients and their families identified the required skills for better daily management of the disease. An interview guide for educational diagnosis was created, and learning objectives specific to ichthyosis were determined. This stage of educational diagnosis was essential for better setting the difficulties and the actual resources of patients and their families before going further with the reinforcement program.

Ichthyosis refers to a relatively uncommon group of skin disorders characterized by the presence of excessive amounts of dry surface scales. It is regarded as a disorder of keratinization or cornification, and it is due to abnormal epidermal differentiation or metabolism.
I live in a world that judges one by outward appearances before taking the time to find out what lies deeper than the skin… very thick skin. I was born with Ichthyosis, a genetic mutation that affects the stratum corneum, a layer of the epidermis. In order to manage the skin, I spend about three hours a day doing a plethora of treatments. I am no different than you though. We are all hit with something challenging in our lifetime, whether it is ongoing or not we must learn to conquer and not let it cripple us.

In the August 26 issue of Science Express, the Yale team describes how one mutated copy of a gene called keratin 10 causes a severe skin disease known as ichthyosis with confetti. However, amidst the diseased skin, these patients also have hundreds to thousands of spots of normal skin. This phenomenon, the researchers report, occurs by the recombination of chromosomes prior to cell division. Instead of producing one normal copy of the gene and one dominant, disease-causing mutation, the exchange between chromosomes results in cells with either two mutant copies or no mutant copies. If the latter occurs, spots of normal, disease-free skin will form. The investigators used these recombination events in spots of normal skin to map and ultimately identify the disease gene.. Patients with a rare skin disease, ichthyosis with confetti, also have spots of normal skin which occur when mutations of disease-causing genes revert to normal during cell division.. Usually, you have a disease-causing ...
A team of EU-funded researchers has successfully identified a gene that triggers a skin disorder in dogs - and the findings could have implications for humans who also suffer from the condition. Whether it manifests in golden retrievers or in humans, the disease ichthyosis has the same common genetic basis; therefore, any new bounds made in understanding the condition in dogs are applicable to humans too. No molecular cause for ichthyosis has previously been identified.. Humans and dogs tend to suffer from the same conditions. We live together in the same environments and the dogs genetic make-up could hold the key to better understanding the genetic origins of cancer, epilepsy, cardiovascular diseases and diabetes.. The team, from France, Belgium and Germany, received a funding boost from the LUPA (Unravelling the molecular basis of common complex human disorders using the dog as a model system) project, which is funded in part by a EUR 12 million grant under the EUs Seventh Framework ...

I have it on my stomach, back, knees, elbows and feet. The only time I cleared up was in the summer via tanning in the sun. Completely gone! Need to move to Hawaii. However, during the other times of the year it came back strong! I have tried everything that is ointment related. Some worked but alot didnt, it took like a half hour to apply everday. Found a good derm and he started talking about rets. They scared me, some were really chance taking (all liver related). We decided to start with Soriatane. I was leary because of the blood work and possible side-effects, but I was desperate too. So, I started on 25mg. It started to show in about 2 months, but not completely. So he bumped me 35 mg/day.

Autosomal recessive congenital ichthyosis (ARCI) encompasses several forms of nonsyndromic ichthyosis. Although most neonates with ARCI are collodion babies, the clinical presentation and severity of ARCI may vary significantly, ranging from harlequin ichthyosis, the most severe and often fatal form, to lamellar ichthyosis (LI) and (nonbullous) congenital ichthyosiform erythroderma (CIE). These phenotypes are now recognized to fall on a continuum; however, the phenotypic descriptions are clinically useful for clarification of prognosis and management.
We report the genomic localization by homozygosity mapping and the identification of a gene for a new form of non-syndromic autosomal recessive congenital ichthyosis. The phenotype usually presents as non-bullous congenital ichthyosiform erythroderma with fine whitish scaling on an erythrodermal background; larger brownish scales are present on the buttocks, neck and legs. A few patients presented a more generalized lamellar ichthyosis. Palmoplantar keratoderma was present in all cases, whereas only 60% of the patients were born as collodion babies. Six homozygous mutations including one nonsense and five missense mutations were identified in a new gene, ichthyin, on chromosome 5q33 in 23 patients from 14 consanguineous families from Algeria, Colombia, Syria and Turkey. Ichthyin encodes a protein with several transmembrane domains which belongs to a new family of proteins of unknown function localized in the plasma membrane (PFAM: DUF803), with homologies to both transporters and G-protein ...

The term has been used to describe several different, rare, severe disorders of keratinisation characterized by massive hyperkeratosis. The term has also been employed to describe localized and linear warty epidermal nevi sometimes associated with mental retardation, seizures or skeletal anomalies. A few exceedingly rare syndromes may be classified as forms of ichthyosis hystrix in the strict sense: - ICHTHYOSIS HYSTRIX GRAVIOR - LAMBERT TYPE, a condition characterized by hyperkeratoses covering the entire body except for the face, genitals, palms and soles. It was first described in the Lambert family in Britain at the beginning of the 18th century. - ICHTHYOSIS HYSTRIX GRAVIOR - CURTH-MACKLIN TYPE, a disorder characterized by hystrix-like changes and keratoses of the palms and soles. The histological findings differ from those of all other ichthyoses. - ICHTHYOSIS HYSTRIX GRAVIOR - RHEYDT TYPE, a condition consisting of keratoses especially on the extremities including the flexor surfaces and ...

Collodion is a flammable, syrupy solution of pyroxylin (a.k.a. nitrocellulose, cellulose nitrate, flash paper, and gun cotton) in ether and alcohol. There are two basic types: flexible; non-flexible. The flexible type is often used as a surgical dressing or to hold dressings in place. When painted on the skin, collodion dries to form a flexible nitrocellulose film. While it is initially colorless, it discolors over time. Non-flexible collodion is often used in theatrical make-up. In 1846 Louis-Nicolas Ménard and Florès Domonte discovered that cellulose nitrate could be dissolved in ether. They devised a mixture of ether (ethoxyethane) as the solvent and ethanol as a diluent that rendered cellulose nitrate into a clear gelatinous liquid. Collodion was first used medically as a dressing in 1847 by the Boston physician John Parker Maynard. The solution was dubbed collodion (from the Greek κολλώδης (kollodis), gluey) by Dr. A.A. Gould of Boston, Massachusetts. In 1851, Frederick ...
The collodion process produced a negative image on a transparent support (glass). This was an improvement over the calotype process, discovered by Henry Fox Talbot, which relied on paper negatives, and the daguerreotype, which produced a one-of-a-kind positive image and could not be replicated. The collodion process, thus combined desirable qualities of the calotype process (enabling the photographer to make a theoretically unlimited number of prints from a single negative) and the daguerreotype (creating a sharpness and clarity that could not be achieved with paper negatives). Collodion printing was typically done on albumen paper. As collodion is a sticky and transparent medium, and can be soaked in a solution of silver nitrate while wet, it is ideal for coating stable surfaces such as glass or metal for photography. When a metal plate is coated with collodion, charged with silver nitrate, exposed, and developed, it produces a direct positive image, although backwards on the plate due to ...
The main focus of this thesis was the clinical and genetic analysis of a family referred to us with the diagnosis of autosomal dominant lamellar ichthyosis (ADLI). Through direct sequencing of the loricrin gene (LOR) the mutation 730insG was identified and the family was diagnosed as having loricrin keratoderma. By sequencing further patients it was shown that ADLI is not a loricrin keratoderma. Based on refined clinical examination and analysis of the literature the following criteria could be defined for the entity seen: Compulsory features are honeycomb-like palmoplantar keratoderma and ichthyosis, optional features are pseudoainhums, autoamputations, collodion baby, prominent knuckle pads as well as hyperkeratotic lesions on knees and elbows. Therefore the disorder of keratinisation of the family described here genetically characterised as loricrin keratoderma should be clinically termed honeycomb-like palmoplantar keradoderma with ichthyosis. To molecularly diagnose loricrin keratoderma ...
Dominant ichthyosis vulgaris may present with symptoms such as atopy, pruritus, hyperkeratosis and xerosis. Dominant ichthyosis is an autosomal dominant disorder which characterized by mild cases of generalized xerosis with scaling mostly on the legs.

Ichthyosis is a hereditary condition affecting keratinization (formation of the epidermis). There are several types of varying severity. The most common ichthyosis, also the least severe, is ichthyosis vulgaris (vulgar meaning frequent). It begins in childhood and is manifested through dry and scaly skin, particularly on the abdomen, arms and legs. It is often described as lizard skin or snake skin. The term ichthyosis actually comes from the Greek word for fish. Ichthyosis vulgaris and atopic dermatitis often affect patients together. They have a similar genetic basis: a filaggrin deficiency. Emollient treatments are effective against Ichthyosis vulgaris ...

The cause of ichthyosis hystrix, Curth Macklin type is a defect in the development of the precursor, structural protein (tonofilaments). The defect occurs as a result of a change (mutation) in the gene that produces (codes for) these proteins. The faulty gene has been mapped to chromosome 12q13.. Ichthyosis Hystrix, Curth-Macklin type is an inherited disorder, transmitted as an autosomal dominant trait.. Chromosomes, which are present in the nucleus of human cells, carry the genetic information for each individual. Human body cells normally have 46 chromosomes. Pairs of human chromosomes are numbered from 1 through 22 and the sex chromosomes are designated X and Y. Males have one X and one Y chromosome and females have two X chromosomes. Each chromosome has a short arm designated p and a long arm designated q. Chromosomes are further sub-divided into many bands that are numbered. For example, chromosome 12q13 refers to band 13 on the long arm of chromosome 12. The numbered bands specify ...
The harlequin ichthyosis (ichq) mouse mutation arose spontaneously in 1989 in a colony of BALB/cJ mice at The Jackson Laboratory. Affected mice developed thick skin due to formation of compact, orthokeratotic scales that fractured over articular surfaces, secondary to bending. Harlequin ichthyosis mice on the inbred BALB/cJ background died between 9 and 12 days of age. Onset of the clinical phenotype corresponded with emergence of hair fibers from follicles at 5 days of age. There was marked proliferation of the root sheaths of anagen hair follicles, limited to the region within the dermis. Sebaceous glands were present but small compared with those of littermate controls. Emerging hair fibers were surrounded by a thick, compact sheath of cornified cells. Mutant skin contained large mitochondria with lamellar-shaped, electron-dense structures at the ultrastructural level. Keratohyalin granules were smaller and less pleomorphic than those in control mice. Lamellar bodies were not evident in
Harlequin ichthyosis is a severe genetic disorder that mainly affects the skin. The newborn infant is covered with plates of thick skin that crack and split apart. The thick plates can pull at and distort facial features and can restrict breathing and eating. Mutations in the ABCA12 gene cause harlequin ichthyosis. This condition is inherited in an autosomal recessive pattern ...

Welcome to The Silver Sunbeam - online home of Andy Martins forays into, and 21st century resurrection of, the Victorian era Wet Collodion (wetplate) photographic process in the tintype studio and across the North of England since 2010.. The images you see here are taken directly on metal and glass plates using a technique which dates back to 1851, invented by Englishman Frederick Scott Archer. On this site is a mix of studio based tintypes and ambrotypes of people Ive known a long time, some Ive only just met, a selection of scenes of Sunderland, Tanfield Railway, Beamish Museum and across the wider North East.. The wet collodion process involves coating a metal or glass plate with a collodion solution before placing it into a bath of silver nitrate. Once sensitised by the silver, the plate is loaded into the camera and the exposure made, ranging from a second up to a minute (sometimes more), depending on the lighting conditions.. Then, the plate is returned to the darkroom and developed, ...

Image Source Harlequin Baby, which is also commonly known as Harlequin Fetus, is known in medical science as Harlequin-type ichthyosis, keratosis diffusa fetalis, Harlequin ichthyosis, ichthyosis congenita, Ichthyosis fetalis and Ichthyosis congenita gravior.. It is a weird skin disease characterized by a thickening of the keratin layer in a newly born skin. Children suffering from such unusual condition tend to have a reddish color and the skin contains massive, diamond-shaped scales. The appendages, ears, eyes and penis may be abnormally contracted. The childs movement is limited due to the cracked skin and is susceptible to bacteria which could result to fatal infection.. ...

A loved one recently underwent a few medical procedures. Thankfully, the news was good, but it caused me to wonder what the medical world would be like if our x-rays were made with wet plate collodion. Since the collodion process is said to reveal our true character, how would our diagnosis change in a world…
I ordered the B&S kit, but once Im done with the chemicals in that kit, Id like to get my chems in bulk, or at least larger quantities. I know of Artcraft Chemicals (owned by Q. Jacobsons brother) and have bought silver nitrate from them before. eBay might be a source for some items, too. Getting collodion and ethyl ether is trickier - at least right now. I wanted to know where you more experienced guys get your collodion and chemicals? Id love to compile a good list of suppliers.
