Epidermolytic hyperkeratosis is a type of ichthyosis. We present a case of epidermolytic hyperker- atosis in 7 months old male infant who developed generalized erythematous hyperkeratosis & vesicles at birth. Later, the skin lesions progressed to characteristic thick, grayish dark brown scales affecting flexural & intertriginous areas. Histological examination revealed hyperkeratosis, vacuolation of Malpighian cells & markedly thickening of granular layer containing many keratohyaline granules.
