“…52,61,62,215,216 However, one should consider that a reduced or absent SG suggestive for IV can also be seen in acquired ichthyosis, NS, Refsum syndrome, TTDs, or Conradi-Hünermann-Happle syndrome. Hair mounts can demonstrate bamboo hairs (trichorrhexis invaginata) in NS 123 ; although not invariably present, bamboo hairs are pathognomonic of this disorder. Parakeratosis and hypergranulosis is regarded a histopathological clue to loricrin keratoderma.…”

“…Spink5 is expressed in the differentiated layers of stratified epithelial tissue, and mutations in this gene have been shown to be the cause of autosomal-recessive Netherton syndrome (Netherton, 1958). Patients with this condition suffer from frequent bacterial infections.…”

“…NS involves both cutaneous and immunological abnormalities, including congenital ichthyosiform erythroderma, pro nounced peeling of the skin with detachment of the stratum corneum (SC) from the under lying epidermis, severe atopy with elevated serum IgE, and a characteristic hair shaft defect (Comel, 1949;Netherton, 1958;Judge et al, 1994;Hausser and Anton Lamprecht, 1996). Collec tively, these detriments represent a serious chal lenge to neonate health and promote frequent complications, including hypernatremic dehy dration, failure to thrive and recurrent bacterial infections that can be life threatening.…”
