CHILD (congenital hemidysplasia with ichthyosiform erythroderma and limb defects) syndrome is a rare disorder characterized by birth defects of several organ systems, including the skin, viscera, musculoskeletal system, and central nervous system. The earliest description of the syndrome has been attributed to Otto Sachs in 1903. CHILD syndrome is caused by an X-linked dominant mutation in the NSDHL gene encoding for an enzyme in the cholesterol biosynthetic pathway.
