Ichthyosis Follicularis

definition

Disorder characterized by follicular keratoses on the trunk and especially on the proximal parts of the extremities. It appears distinct from keratosis pilaris because of its generalized nature and its severity. Associated features may also be present. Some patients also have ichthyosis vulgaris. However, it is not clear whether it is merely a coincidence of the two conditions, and whether follicular ichthyosis may represent more than one disorder.
