Squamous cell carcinoma in congenital ichthyosis with deafness and keratitis. A case report and review of the literature.
The first case of invasive squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) arising in the skin of a patient afflicted with keratitis, ichthyosis, and deafness (KID) syndrome is reported. A 35-year-old man, diagnosed as having KID syndrome in early childhood, developed bilateral fungating lesions on his feet. The entire left foot became involved with a multinodular fungating mass which proved to harbor a SCC, necessitating a left below-knee amputation. Although rare, KID syndrome can be associated with SCC of the skin.
