Disease definition. Dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa (DEB) is a form of inherited epidermolysis bullosa (EB) characterized by cutaneous and mucosal fragility. Epidermolysis bullosa (EB) is a group of inherited bullous disorders characterized by blister formation in response to mechanical trauma.

Allelic disorders include autosomal dominant DEB DDEB;in which the phenotype is less severe, and nonsyndromic congenital nail disorder-8 NDNC8;which has been found to segregate as an autosomal dominant trait in heterozygous carriers in some families with recessive DEB.

The findings confirmed that the 2 clinical forms of the disorder are allelic. Restoration of type VII collagen expression and function in dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa. Albopapuloid lesions were reported independently in a subset of DDEB patients by Pasini and Maschkilleisson Human type VII collagen: Nutritional requirements should be evaluated by a dietitian and gastrostomy feeding may be dystropphica.

Epidermolysis Bullosa – NORD (National Organization for Rare Disorders)

In the family with 3 affected sibs in which linkage studies excluded the involvement of the collagenase locus on 11q22, Hovnanian et al. In family members with dystrophic changes limited to the toenails but without skin fragility, they identified heterozygosity for the glycine substitutions GR Currently, there is no cure for EB.

Caring for Someone with EB. Prognosis Prognosis depends on the subtype.

General Discussion Epidermolysis bullosa EB is a genetic skin disorder characterized clinically by blister formation from mechanical trauma.

Recessive genetic disorders occur when an individual inherits two copies of an abnormal gene for the same trait, one from each parent.


We need long-term secure funding to provide you the information that you need at your fingertips. The material is in no way intended to replace professional medical care by a qualified specialist and should not be used as a basis for diagnosis or treatment.

Epidermolysis bullosa dystrophica with epidermal neoplasm. For all other comments, please send your remarks via contact us. Stem dystropphica transplant therapy trials for recessive dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa are being conducted at at least two institutions. The cells appeared to ba hematopoietic in origin, but their identity could not be fully determined. Clinical diagnosis of the type of EB based on presentation in the neonatal period should be avoided as all types of EB may look alike in this age group.

The expression and posttranslational modification profile of the recombinant collagen type VII was comparable to that of the wildtype counterpart. For further information contact the following: These epidwrmolysis from mutations in the genes encoding other proteins of the epidermis or the basement membrane at the junction between the epidermis and the dermis.

Electron microscopy in the early diagnosis of genetic disorders of the skin. Two patients had rapid and substantial clinical improvement, 1 had slow improvement with only a modest overall benefit, 1 had rapid improvement on short-term follow-up, and 1 had a recurrence of blistering after an early period of almost no blistering.


Increased glycosaminoglycan accumulation as a genetic characteristic in cell cultures of one variety of dominant dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa.

In Faroe Islanders, Joensen et al. A missense mutation in type VII collagen in two affected siblings with recessive dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa. Epidermolysis bullosa dystrophica is a clinically heterogeneous disorder characterized by blistering and scarring of the skin and mucous membranes in response to mechanical force.


Keeping the skin cool: A Clinical, Genetic and Epidemiological Study. Patients should avoid prolonged exposure to ambient heat and humidity. Recently, several suprabasal types of EBS have been epidermokysis as well. Injection of genetically engineered fibroblasts corrects regenerated human epidermolysis bullosa skin tissue. Open wounds on the skin heal slowly or not at all, often scarring extensively, and are particularly susceptible to infection. Prenatal diagnosis of epidermolysis bullosa dystrophica Hallopeau-Siemens with electron microscopy of fetal skin.

Dominant dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa DDEB Also known as “Cockayne-Touraine disease”, this variant is characterized by vesicles and bullae on the extensor surfaces of the extremities.

Rare Disease Database

Although both families had some clinical features of the Pasini type, there was considerable interfamilial and intrafamilial variability. Part II — Diagnosis and Management.

Type VII collagen is susceptible to degradation by collagenase Seltzer et al. Epidermolysis Bullosa with Pyloric Atresia.

Elidermolysis is also a rare acquired autoimmune disorder called epidermolysis bullosa aquisita. Dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa DEB is a form of inherited epidermolysis bullosa EB characterized by cutaneous and mucosal fragility resulting in blisters and superficial ulcerations that develop below the lamina densa of the cutaneous basement membrane and that heal with significant scarring and milia formation.

Management with intensive lubricant therapy, soft-bandage contact lenses, and cataract extraction successfully restored her sight.
