Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A retrospective survey was performed between 1983 and 1995 to determine the frequency of steroid sulfatase (STS) deficiency in Hiroshima. Males with ichthyosis were diagnosed enzymatically. During 1979-95 in Hiroshima Prefecture, 275,943 males were born and 28 had STS deficiency. The observed frequency of STS deficiency was 1 per 9855 males. Therefore, STS deficiency is fairly prevalent in Japan.
