Uncommon disorder which may represent more than one metabolic abnormality. It is inherited as a recessive characteristic and presents with generalized erythroderma and fine scaling of the entire skin surface, the skin changes usually being present at birth. The erythema tends to decrease in later life and may disappear in middle age, but the scaling persists and may even worsen with age. Small stature, mental retardation, ocular defects and other developmental abnormalities are occasionally associated.
