|Mode of Inheritance|
Epidermolytic hyperkeratosis is a skin disorder that results in dark grey, flaky and fragile skin. This variant of the disease, found in the Norfolk Terrier, is caused by a recessive mutation to the gene KRT10.
Affected puppies are born with fragile skin that is easily shifted or sloughed. In development, the skin becomes flaky or scaly and dark grey, mostly in intertriginous areas (where skin surfaces fold or rub together). However, there is no notable change to footpads, hair, claws or teeth.
