Genodermatoses

                                             Geno dermatoses are genetic diseases with cutaneous expression. The estimation of genetic risks requires accuracy and thus genetic counselling is important in dermatological practice. Some are characterized particularly by alterations in the normal keratinization process referred as Geno keratoses. Permanent defect in dermal epidermal adhesion causes epidermolysis bullosa. The diagnostic methods include Electron microscope examination and so on. Xeroderma Pigmentosum is a genetic disorder of DNA repair in which the ability to repair damage caused by ultraviolent is deficient. The treatment for this disorder includes cryotherapy and avoiding exposure to sunlight etc. Only 40% of the individuals with this disease survive beyond the age of 20. Some of the congenital malformations and deformations of skin diseases ichthyosis vulgaris, X linked ichthyosis etc.
