Patient with Ichthyosis
Ruzicka Goerz Anton syndrome is a rare genetic disease described by Ruzicka et al. in 1981. It is characterized by icthyosis (rough, scaly skin), deafness, mental retardation, and skeletal anomalies.
It is also known as "Ichthyosis deafness mental retardation skeletal anomalies".
In 1981, a case was studied by Ruzicka et al. of a 15-year-old girl. The patient had ichthyosis congenita as well as deafness and retarded mental development. Further studies showed several skeletal deformities including brachydactyly, clinodactyly, and extra ribs. One year earlier, the patient had developed thyroid carcinoma, but whether or not this is due to the syndrome is unknown. The patient was treated with an oral retinoid, which greatly improved the patient's ichthyosis.
