Harlequin Ichthyosis

The baby born in Nagpur, Maharashtra is believed to be India’s first known case of Harlequin Ichthyosis – a severe genetic disorder which leaves the entire body encased in armour-like thick white plates, separated by deep cracks. Dr Yash Banai (shown in picture) says there is no cure for the condition. According to the him, a baby with the same condition lived for 24 years after being born in Pakistan in 1984. Harlequin Ichthyosis, which affects approximately 1 in 300,000 births, requires intensive care at birth.
