A case of "collodion baby", a newborn in whom the whole body surface is covered by thick skin sheets, described as "collodion membrane" is reported. The collodion membrane is the result of an epidermal cornification disorder. In almost all cases an autosomal recessive ichthyosiform disease is implicated. Clinically, collodion babies may encounter dehydration, electrolyte imbalance, temperature malfunction and increased risk of severe infections due to skin damage. These newborns should be monitored carefully in intensive care units and appropriate and supportive treatment must be undertaken.

The social-conversational skills of 178 typically-developing Italian toddlers aged 12, 18, and 24 months have been studied. The results indicate that the mean scores for social conversational skills increase with age and that the three age groups were significantly different from each other. In addition, subscale scores for assertiveness and responsiveness skills also differentiate each age group, indicating the usefulness of the scale in measuring developmental progress in communication skills.
