Incontinentia Pigmenti (IP) also called Bloch-Sulzberger syndrome is a rare X linked genodermatosis, affecting the females and lethal in males. The gene affected is NEMO or IKK gamma gene located on Xq28. It is a multisystem disorder affecting ectoderm-derived structures, including skin, teeth, hair, nails, eyes and central nervous systems(CNS).
