Abstract

ENEI, Maria Leonor et al. Do you know this syndrome?. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2011, vol.86, n.4, pp. 815-815. ISSN 0365-0596.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962011000400037.

Keratitis-ichthyosis-deafness (KID) syndrome is a rare congenital ectodermal dysplasia affecting skin, the corneal epithelium and inner ear. Clinical signs consist of erythrokeratodermal plaques on the face and skin folds, usually present from birth, as well as severe and bilateral sensorineural hearing loss and corneal vascularization associated with slow-progressing keratitis which follows skin and hearing changes at puberty. In view of symptoms of deafness, blindness, skin infections and the risk of malignant degeneration, early diagnosis of the syndrome is essential, together with clinical follow-up and genetic counseling
