Topical N-Acetylcysteine for the Treatment of Lamellar Ichthyosis: An Improved Formula

Authors


Abstract

Topical N-acetylcysteine is gaining recognition as a useful and safe therapy for lamellar ichthyosis. We report a case of inherited lamellar ichthyosis that showed a good response to treatment with a new formula of N-acetylcysteine cream. With this new formula, which is described in the article in a practical manner, the odor of sulfur was minimized and we obtained excellent adherence to treatment.
