- X-linked ichthyosis (XLI) is a relatively common keratinization disorder which is caused, in the vast majority of cases, by a total deletion of the sulfatase steroid (STS) gene. Dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa (DEB) is a scarring form of epidermolysis bullosa of either autosomal recessive or dominant inheritance secondary to collagen VII gene mutations. We report the first case of a patient with both XLI and DEB in whom a partial deletion of the STS gene and a recessive point mutation in COL7A1 were demonstrated.
