My husband and I just found out we are pregnant. We have a son that was a Colloidan baby born with CIE Non Blistering Ick. We are wondering what are chances may be of having another baby with Ick since neither one of us have it but our son does.

I'm not sure if it's the case with everyone (I think it is with collodion babies/ARCI) but our geneticist told us we have a 1 in 4 chance of having an affected child.
My name is Morgan. My son Brandyn was born on 26th June, 2008 in Sydney, Australia as a collodion baby and has been diagnosed with lamellar ichthyosis.

MkJules~ Congrats!

I have EHK or the blistering CIE (Im pretty sure that's the right way to say it.). my oldest son (19mo) also has it. my 4 month old doesn't.

I'm not sure what the chances would be but do you know if either of you are carriers or was it a spontaneous mutation? that would give you an idea on your chances of another baby with it.
