Harlequin Ichthyosis

Harlequin Ichthyosis

Harlequin Ichthyosis is an extremely rare fetal disease. Newborns affected by it have no chance of survival past a day or so out of the womb. They are born with a criss-cross web of red gashes across the whole body and pieces of plate-like scales in between that is actually malformed skin. Also, their eyes are typically solid red masses that bulge outside of the skull.
