Erythroderma in the early years of life can have a wide array of differential diagnosis. We present a case of infantile erythroderma who presented to us at the age of 3 years with characteristic manifestations of ichthyosis linearis circumflexa and trichorrhexis invaginata, thus helping us arrive at a diagnosis of Netherton syndrome without the aid of expensive genetic analysis. This case is presented for its rarity and to highlight the importance of clinical examination of the appendages which may be an important clue to the diagnosis.
