Ichthyosis follicularis alopecia photophobia (IFAP) syndrome (OMIM 308205) is a rare genetic disorder characterized by a triad of follicular ichthyosis, congenital atrichia of scalp and photophobia. Until date, only 40 patients have been mentioned in the worldwide literature. The management of this syndrome remains a daunting task because very few case reports have described interventions for treating various clinical features of this entity. We describe IFAP syndrome in an 18-month-old male child, who showed transient improvement in his cutaneous features with oral isotretinoin therapy.
