The National Registry for Ichthyosis and Related Disorders is to identify individuals and families in the United States with the ichthyoses and related disorders and to encourage them to participate in the registry. The ichthyoses are a group of rare, inherited disorders characterized by abnormally dry, scaly, thickened skin due to abnormalities in the production of the protein keratin. The goal of the registry is to obtain data for study by skin biologists, pharmacologists, and other scientists in order to promote research into the diagnosis and treatment of these disorders. Interested individuals will be asked to complete a "Patient Enrollment Form"; their physicians will need to complete the "Physician's Form." The National Institutes of Health, American Academy of Dermatology, The Society of Investigative Dermatology, and the Foundation support the registry for Ichthyosis and Related Skin Types (FIRST). Individuals with ichthyosis vulgaris are not included in this registry.
