Harlequin Autosomal recessive congenital ichthyosis (ARCI) encompasses several forms of nonsyndromic ichthyosis. Although most neonates with ARCI.

The harlequin ichthyosis phenotype is very rare. Most pathogenic variants are distributed in the first two thirds of the gene. Influence of nutrition on growth and development of a long-surviving harlequin fetus. Three consanguineous Lebanese families were reported with a homozygous missense variant in this gene in all affected probands [ Shigehara et al ].

One of the primary functions of these cornified envelopes is to provide the barrier function of the skin. Please review our privacy policy. In addition, the fish mouth appearance, mouth breathing, and xerostomia place affected individuals at extremely high risk for developing rampant dental decay.

Nonbullous forms of palmoplantar keratodermas can present at birth or soon after, although the findings are mostly limited to the palms and soles with only a mild generalized ichthyosis in some. The material is in no way intended to replace professional medical care by a qualified specialist and should not be used as a basis for diagnosis or treatment. Data are compiled from the following standard congeniat Aphthous stomatitis oral candidiasis lichen planus congeinta pemphigus vulgaris mucous membrane pemphigoid cicatricial pemphigoid herpesvirus coxsackievirus syphilis systemic histoplasmosis squamous-cell carcinoma.

Carrier testing for at-risk relatives and prenatal testing for pregnancies at increased risk are possible if both ARCI-related pathogenic variants have been identified in a family.


The protein product of TGM1, protein-glutamine gamma-glutamyltransferase K transglutaminase Khas amino acid residues with a molecular weight of Bathing suit ichthyosis BSI is a form of ARCI characterized by collodion membrane at birth, encasing the entire skin, with clinical healing of the ichthyosis on the arms and legs during the first weeks of life Oji et al. She was not born with collodion, and thick scales had appeared during infancy. Problems in prenatal diagnosis of the ichthyosis congenita group.

Mutations in lipid transporter ABCA12 in harlequin ichthyosis and functional recovery by corrective gene transfer. Mutations of keratinocyte transglutaminase in lamellar ichthyosis. Two cases of autosomal recessive congenital ichthyosis due to CYP4F22 mutations: Early complications result from infection due to fissuring of the hyperkeratoic plates and respiratory distress due to physical restriction of chest wall expansion.

Sequence analysis detects variants that are benign, likely benign, of uncertain significancelikely pathogenic, or pathogenic. Clinical description Affected infants born encased in a collodion membrane taut, shiny, translucent membrane appearing as an extra skin layer with armorlike plates, distributed throughout the body, which severely restrict movement. Haplotype analysis revealed that the most common mutation, RC All 8 patients presented with cicatricial lagophthalmos inability to appose the eyelids due to cutaneous scarring.

Biochemical and ultrastructural abnormalities have suggested genetic heterogeneity and division into 3 subtypes of harlequin ichthyosis Dale et al. Retrieved 18 July The scales were dark brown, large, and plate-like. The severity of symptoms can vary enormously, from the mildest, most common, types such as ichthyosis vulgariswhich may be mistaken for normal dry skin, up to life-threatening conditions such as harlequin-type ichthyosis.

Lamellar ichthyosis in a female neonate without a collodion membrane.

Clinical Synopsis Toggle Dropdown. Vahlquist proposed a subclassification of ARCI for the icctiosis forms of ichthyosis, including self-healing collodion baby and ichthyosis prematurity syndrome IPSto be designated ‘pleomorphic ichthyosis’ PI. No mutations were identified in the 3 remaining patients, suggesting that mutations in additional, as yet unidentified genes may also lead to a self-improving collodion ichthyosis phenotype.

Nevertheless, the prognosis of IPS is generally excellent. Institution of a very high intake of protein led to satisfactory growth and development. Structure of the gene for human transglutaminase 1.

Deficient stratum corneum intercellular lipid in a Japanese patient with lamellar ichthyosis by a homozygous deletion mutation in SDR9C7. OMIM is intended for use primarily by physicians and other professionals concerned with genetic disorders, by congfnita researchers, and by advanced students in science and medicine.


Mice that were homozygous for 2 null alleles displayed a hyperplastic, hyperkeratotic epidermis and abnormal hair follicles, and died between 5 and 12 days of conbenita. Waring pointed to an early mention of a harlequin fetus in the diary of the Reverend Congenit. In half of the cases, a nail dystrophy including ridging, subungual hyperkeratosis, or hypoplasia has been described. Gaucher diseasetype 2. Similarly, patients with IPS are born prematurely and have a severe neonatal phenotypewhile ichthyosis improves with age and may almost resolve by adulthood, possibly due to compensation by other FATP proteins [ Klar et al ].

Ichthyosis, lamellar congfnita type. Harlequin ichthyosis is characterized by a thick, taut body armor-like covering that severely restricts movement and results in deformities of the face, head, and extremities.

LI-causing variants in ABCA12 cluster in five neighboring exons that form the first nuclear binding fold and exclusively represent missense variants predicted to interfere with specific functions of this protein domain.

It carries a more grave prognosis Shelmire, Prenatal diagnosis of Harlequin ichthyosis presenting as distal arthrogryposis using three-dimensional ultrasound.
