Ichthyosis disorders comprise a large group of congenital disorders characterized by the presence of visible scaling of the skin. Ichthyosis, brittle hair, intellectual impairment, decreased fertility and short stature (IBIDS) are characteristics of IBIDS syndrome. Trichothiodystrophy is a term which describes brittle hair in association with a low sulfur concentration. We present a patient with IBIDS syndrome and review associated physical findings and other related syndromes.
