Ichthyosis is a rare heterogeneous cutaneous disorder characterized by hyperkeratinization of the skin. They may be inherited or acquired following malnutrition, malignancy, or autoimmune disorders. Common forms of ichthyosis include lamellar ichthyosis (LI), X-linked ichthyosis, bullous ichthyosiform erythroderma, and ichthyosis vulgaris. LI may be associated with ectropion and eclabion and if poorly managed could result in vision loss. The case of a 7-month-old girl who presented with bilateral keratitis, panophthalmitis, and perforated right cornea is reported in this communication.
