Extract

An 11-year-old girl from Somalia has congenital lamellar ichthyosis. She has been blind since childhood because of corneal scarring and vascularization from exposure due to severe cicatricial ectropion. Ultrasonography has shown a phthisis bulbi (shrunken eye) of both eyes. Ophthalmic treatment besides lubrication is considered ineffective. Dermal topical treatment with emollients and salicylic acid, aimed at reducing hyperkeratosis and moisturizing the underlying skin, was not very effective.
