Abstract

We described a Turkish girl with Chanarin-Dorfman syndrome who developed liver cirrhosis in the early infancy. She had all the clinical features of Chanarin-Dorfman syndrome such as ichthyosis, Jordan's anomaly, fatty liver disease and mild ectropion. The diagnosis was confirmed with a novel ABHD5 mutation. Liver steatosis or steatohepatitis with or without hepatomegaly is the predominant finding of Chanarin-Dorfman syndrome. Cirrhosis has been reported in patients with long-duration disease.
