We present a case of a collodion baby, born from consanguineous parents. After a few weeks the collodion membrane peeled away and all that was left was a mild dry skin. Genetic testing revealed a homozygous mutation in the transglumatinase-1 gene. This mutation has never been associated with self healing collodion, but it has been reported as a cause of lamellar ichthyosis in two sisters. This new insight will help elucidating the genotypic spectrum of self healing/self improving collodion babies and provides new information on the prognosis of future collodion babies with this particular mutation.
