Collodion baby

Collodion baby is a clinical description for a collodion-like covering that can be present in newborns with various ichthyoses.

There is a high mortality, but if the child survives, the collodion surface peels off to reveal a more typical ichthyosis.

Treatment:

  • Intensive neonatal care in a temperature and humidity controlled environment.
