A pregnant woman rushes to the hospital to have her baby.
The doctor reveals that her baby boy is born with Harlequin type Ichthyosis.
The doctor explains that her baby is effected because both the mother and father carry the recessive trait.
Growing up, the child will make frequent visits to the doctor. He will have to apply skin-softening emollients to keep the skin moisturized.
In severe cases, the patient will need to take oral retinoids.
Those affected usually die by adolescence.
