NIH Rare Diseases:47 X-linked ichthyosis is a disorder in which the skin cells are produced at a normal rate but they do not separate properly at the surface of the stratum corneum (the outermost layer of the skin). This slows the rate of shedding of the skin cells, resulting in a build-up of scales. The scales of X-linked ichthyosis are often dark and usually cover only a portion of the body. Typically, the trunk and back of the neck are more likely to be affected. Scales are usually not found on the face, scalp, palms of the hands, and soles of the feet. X-linked ichthyosis mostly affects males. It is usually caused by a mutation or deletion in the STS gene and is inherited in an X-linked recessive manner. In rare cases, the ichthyosis can be part of a genetic syndrome in which other parts of the body are affected. Topical treatment may consist of alpha-hydroxy acids, lubricating bath oils, and emollients. For adult patients, systemic retinoids may be an option, especially during winter when the ichthyosis is often more severe. The ichthyosis is life-long, but the scaling may improve with age.

MalaCards based summary: Ichthyosis, X-Linked, also known as x-linked ichthyosis, is related to ichthyosis vulgaris and hordeolum externum, and has symptoms including dry skin, hyperkeratosis and hypohidrosis. An important gene associated with Ichthyosis, X-Linked is STS (Steroid Sulfatase (Microsomal), Isozyme S), and among its related pathways are Sphingolipid metabolism and Gamma carboxylation, hypusine formation and arylsulfatase activation. Affiliated tissues include skin, lung and brain.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot:69 Ichthyosis, X-linked: A keratinization disorder manifesting with mild erythroderma and generalized exfoliation of the skin within a few weeks after birth. Affected boys later develop large, polygonal, dark brown scales, especially on the neck, extremities, trunk, and buttocks.

Disease Ontology:11 Hordeolum is a sequelae of infectious and parasitic disease consisting of an infection of the sebaceous glands at the base of the eyelashes. Styes are generally caused by a Staphylococcus aureus bacterial infection.
