Abstract

Congenital Hemidysplasia with Ichthyosiform Nevus and Limb Defects (CHILD) is a very rare entity inherited as an X-linked trait. The cutaneous lesions are characteristic and usually involve the right side of the body. We report a case of CHILD syndrome in an Indian child affecting the left side with various other associations not yet described in the literature, such as thrombocytosis and congenital dislocation of the hip. The rarity of the syndrome prompted us to report this case.
