Bébé Collodion syndrome

Bébé Collodion syndrome: Introduction

Bébé Collodion syndrome: A rare birth abnormality where an infant is born covered in a tight, yellow, shiny membrane. The membrane peels off and may reform several times. As the membrane dries it can leave crack which can result in infection, dehydration or inability to control body temperature. The tight skin can also affect breathing and feeding ability or impair blood supply to limbs. In mild cases the underlying skin may be normal. 10% of cases resolve themselves within a few weeks of birth. More detailed information about the symptoms, causes, and treatments of Bébé Collodion syndrome is available below.
