What's already known about this topic?

  • Peeling skin disease (PSD) is a generalized inflammatory genodermatosis.
  • PSD is caused by autosomal recessive nonsense mutations in the human corneodesmosin gene (CDSN), which lead to total corneodesmosin deficiency.

What does this study add?

  • This study reveals a new nonsense mutation in the human CDSN gene, which leads to a truncated form of corneodesmosin and is responsible for PSD.
