Abstract

A new, Swedish case with Tay or IBIDS syndrome is presented. The boy had growth and mental retardation, congenital ichthyosis and brittle hair. He was the only child in an uncle-niece marriage. The boy suffered recurrent infections and died at the age of 3 years from pneumonia. Clinical data on 15 cases are presented from a study of the literature.
