Abstract

The proband was a Japanese woman with bullous congenital ichthyosiform erythroderma harboring a keratin 10 gene mutation M150T. DNA-based prenatal exclusion of bullous congenital ichthyosiform erythroderma was successfully performed in her two consequent pregnancies using chorionic villus samples at 10 to 11 weeks' gestation, several weeks earlier than the previously reported cases.
