Ichthyosis microphthalmos

Overview

Type of disease: Rare conditions

Ichthyosis microphthalmos is an extremely rare genetic syndrome in which dead skin cells accumulate in thick, dry scales on your skin's surface and the person has remarkably small eyes. Exposure to sunlight may improve or worsen the condition. In some cases, excess dead skin sheds much better from wet tanned skin after bathing or a swim, although the dry skin might be preferable to the damaging effects of sun exposure.
