Tilesius pageIchthyosis hystrix (Lambert’s Syndrome), a severe familial skin disorder with scaling and hyperkeratosis, often results in ridges in the skin and is known as porcupine skin. It was first described in 1733 by John Machin who wrote about the case of Edward Lambert, an Englishman who suffered from the disease. Lambert, and his children and grandchildren, traveled through Europe, displaying themselves as “a new species of man” for money. In his work, Tilesius not only discusses Lambert, but also other known cases of the disease. Tilesius was a physician and natural scientist, as well as a skilled artist and expert copperplate engraver. He accompanied research expeditions as a scientist and draftsman and was later a professor at Moscow University.- Quoted from source
