This prematurely born infant presented with this severe skin disorder. She was also found to be of low birth-weight. There was no similar condition in the family or any history of severe skin diseases. There was no consanguinity of the parental marriage. She was subsequently treated and enjoyed reasonable good control of her skin condition.
