We report a 5-year-old child with hyperkeratotic lesions over upper and lower limbs, with bowing of legs and limping. It was proved to be epidermolytic hyperkeratosis (EHK) with nutritional rickets on the basis of clinical, biochemical, radiological and histopathological findings. Although many cases of lamellar ichthyosis and X-linked ichthyosis with rickets have been reported, the association of EHK with rickets is rare (the first such association being reported in 2004). Such association being rare demands careful follow-up for signs and symptoms of rickets so that treatment can be started early.
