Superficial epidermolytic ichthyosis (formerly Ichthyosis bullosa of Siemens) is an uncommon condition caused by dominant mutations in KRT2 encoding keratin 2. Epidermolytic epidermal nevus due to somatic mutations in KRT2 is even rarer. Here, we report the third case of KRT2-associated epidermal nevus and review the literature.
