ABSTRACT: Bullous Ichthyosiform Erythroderma is a rare, genetically pathologically and clinically a distinct disease. The general health and expectation of life are usually normal and associated defects are unusual, but if epidermal defect is severe, death may occur in early infancy. Our patient had unusual features in the form of associated hepatomegaly, microcephaly short stature, open anterior fontanelle and deranged albumin, globin ratio. We are reporting this case of bullous ichthyosiform erythroderma due to these rare associated defects. To the best of our knowledge such associations in a case of bullous ichthyosiform erythroderma have not been reported earlierin Indian literature.
