Ichtyosis Hystrix

Not much is known about Ichthyosis Hystrix. It is an extremely rare form of ichthyosis that involved dead skin to accumulate and turn green. The skin appears like the bark of a tree. An old medical dictionary mentions ‘histrichismus’, a form of ichthyosis characterised by patches of abnormally thick spiky scales. Ichthyosis relates to a ‘fish-scale’ like appearance of the skin.
