Lamellar Ichthyosis (LI) is an uncommon inherited skin condition that manifests from birth. It is among the three inherited skin illnesses known as autosomal recessive congenital ichthyoses (ARCI), which are clinically significant. People’s body with lamellar ichthyosis produces skin cells at a regular pace. However, they do not split up from one another at the skin’s surface as they ought to. Furthermore, the body doesn’t remove the skin quickly enough, resulting in the formation of brown scales.
In addition, newborns born with lamellar ichthyosis are wrapped in a transparent membrane, giving the appearance that they are covered in plastic wrap. Their skin may seem split, tight, black, or red. These newborns’ skin might be so tight that it presses their lips outward. Also, the skin on their hands may be thick, making it difficult for them to stretch their fingers.
