Ichthyosis male hypogonadism

Common Name(s)

Ichthyosis male hypogonadism

Ichthyosis and male hypogonadism is an extremely rare genetic syndrome in which dead skin cells accumulate in thick, dry scales on your skin's surface and there is insufficient hormone production by the testes (male sex organs). Less than 1 in a million persons are affected by this condition. Depending on skin features, exposure to sunlight may improve or worsen the condition. In some cases, excess dead skin sheds much more easily from wet tanned skin after bathing or a swim, although the dry skin might be preferable to the potentially damaging effects of sun exposure.
