Abstract

Collodion baby, a rare congenital disorder associated with congenital ichthyosis, presents a unique challenge for pediatricians due to its striking clinical features and potential complications. This case report delves into the detailed clinical presentation, examination findings, investigations, and treatment of a collodion baby admitted to our pediatric ward. The neonate displayed the classic signs of a collodion membrane, including hyperkeratosis, eclabium, and ectropion, necessitating a thorough diagnostic workup. Genetic testing, specifically targeting the ABCA12 gene, was pivotal in confirming the diagnosis of congenital ichthyosis. The multidisciplinary approach to management, involving meticulous skin care, ophthalmic interventions, and nutritional support, highlights the complexity of caring for these neonates. This report aims to contribute valuable insights to the existing literature on collodion baby, emphasizing the importance of early recognition and comprehensive care for optimal outcomes.
