“…Acquired ichthyosis, resembling ichthyosis vulgaris or sometimes the less specific ichthyosiform eruption, usually begins in adult life and constitutes a cutaneous sign pointing toward a wide range of underlying causes, mostly malignancies. [7][8][9] Endocrinologic and autoimmune disorders, infectious diseases, nutritional disorders, renal impairment, drugs affecting cholesterol metabolism, sarcoidosis, and other rare conditions have all been reported in association with acquired ichthyosis. 10 Regardless of the underlying condition, except for sarcoidosis, in which skin biopsy specimen can be diagnostic, [11][12][13] the histopathologic changes are nonspecific and provide no hint of the cause of the skin eruption.…”

“…However, a similar clinical state occasionally arises during adult life, and is clinically and histologically indistinguishable from the genetically determined ichthyoses. Such 'acquired ichthyosis' is usually ascribed to an underlying malignancy, particularly the reticuloses and especially Hodgkin's disease (Sneddon, 1955;English et al., 1963;Majekodunmi & Femi-Pearse, 1974;Flint, Flam & Soter, 1975). The characteristic dryness and scaliness usually appear some time after other manifestations of the malignant process.…”
