• Two patients had an unusual ichthyosiform dermatosis, neurosensory deafness, and vascularizing keratitis. There was no family history of the disorder and no consanguinity. A squamous cell carcinoma of the tongue developed in one child. The association of such an eruption and deafness in previously reported cases is reviewed.
