  • I was told at birth that I had ichthyosis and that I was supposed to be twin because there was a demarcation in the middle of my body with the skin on the right side scaly. However, I have done some reading and came across CHILD syndrome and am wondering whether there are degrees of this syndrome. I do not think I have any abnormalities of any organs and my limbs are not deformed.  However, I do have some balding on my head on the right side.  Can a person with CHILD Syndrome have normal organs and limbs but have the skin and development issues?
