Treatment of lamellar ichthyosis and other keratinising dermatoses with an oral synthetic retinoid.

Thirteen patients with keratinising dermatoses were treated for 2-17 weeks with oral 13-cis retinoic acid. There was near complete clearing of the skin lesions beginning within 2 weeks of starting treatment in all five patients with lamellar ichthyosis (including two cases of non-bullous congenital ichthyosiform erythroderma), in two of the three patients with Darier's disease, and in one patient with pityriasis rubra pilaris. The patients with psoriasis and naevus comedonicus did not improve. The main form of toxicity was cheilitis. These results indicate that 13-cis retinoic acid may be more effective and is less toxic than naturally occurring retinoic acid (all-trans vitamin A acid), and that the synthetic retinoids may represent a potent new class of drugs in the treatment of cutaneous disease.[1]
