The purpose of this report was to present the clinical and pathological features of ichthyosis congenital observed in a cross-bred Holstein calf. The calf showed regions of alopecia and moderately thickened, fissured skin at birth. The major dermatopathological feature was diffuse lamellar orthokeratotic hyperkeratosis with severe multiple follicular keratosis along with mild acanthosis. The definitive diagnosis was based on history, physical examination, and dermatopathological findings.
