Abstract
We report 2 cases of clinically typical Meleda disease in a family from Herzegovina. Electron microscopy did not reveal major ultrastructural anomalies of keratinization; however, the transition from stratum granulosum to stratum corneum appeared to occur less abruptly than normally by a stepwise process suggesting a slowing down of terminal cornification.
