Hereditary ichthyosis can be syndromic and non-syndromic, the latter, according to the cutaneous phenotypic expression, include common ichthyosis, X-linked recessive ichthyosis, autosomal recessive congenital ichthyosis, keratinopathic ichthyosis and other forms. Autosomal recessive congenital ichthyosis includes three main phenotypes: harlequin ichthyosis, lamellar ichthyosis, and congenital ichthyosiform erythroderma. We report a clinical case of recurrent lamellar ichthyosis in a family.
