Ichthyosis vulgaris is a cornification disorder that is characterized by accumulation of hyperkeratotic fish like scales on the skin surface. It is clinically characterized by scaling, especially on the flexor limbs, with palm plantar hyper linearity. This paper illustrates dermatological as well as dental manifestations of a 14 year old boy affected with ichthyosis vulgaris which makes this case very much unique.
