A case of collodion skin in the newborn infant has been presented with typical features of parchment-like skin, ectropion of upper eyelids, and fixed semiflexion attitude of the limbs. This was followed by desquamation and appearance of normal looking skin in a few days. Etiology of the condition and proper nomenclature is still a matter of controversy.
