Ichthyosis Vulgaris is an inherited skin disorder characterized by cornification of the skin. Scaly or platelike (squamous) skin forms instead of the normal smooth top layer of the skin. Fine scales usually develop on the patient's back and over muscles near a joint such as an elbow or a knee (extensor muscles).
