Netherton syndrome is a rare symptom complex characterized by an ichthyotic skin disorder, greatly elevated IgE levels with atopic manifestations, and characteristic hair shaft abnormalities. We report a 2-year-old male child, who presented with erythroderma, increased serum IgE levels, and trichorrhexis nodosa which can be easily misdiagnosed as psoriatic erythroderma.
