Dr. Sumedh Khandare | Dr. Santhosh Ganpath | Dr. Rachana Laul [3]

Abstract: Acquired ichthyosis (AI) is a condition accompanying many systemic illnesses such as lymphoma, sarcoidosis, systemic sclerosis, dermatomyositis and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Systemic Sclerosis (SS) is an unknown autoimmune connective tissue disease of unknown etiology, characterised by symmetric hardening of the skin of the fingers, hands and face that may generalize. Internal organ involvement is frequent and affects the lungs, gastrointestinal tract, heart and kidneys. The co - existence of systemic sclerosis and AI has been very rarely reported worldwide. We describe a 27 - year - old male with systemic sclerosis who developed ichthyosis on his extremities and trunk. We also review the world literature on AI & SS.
