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. EPIDERMOLYSIS BULLOSA DYSTROPHICA, AUTOSOMAL RECESSIVE, LOCALISATA VARIANT, INCLUDED. EPIDERMOLYSIS BULLOSA DYSTROPHICA.

Compound heterozygosity for silent and dominant glycine substitution mutations in COL7A1 leads to a marked transient intracytoplasmic retention of procollagen VII and a moderately severe dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa phenotype.

Copyright, University of Washington, Seattle. The microscopic changes were said to be similar to those of the Hallopeau-Siemens form of epidermolysis bullosa.

DNA replication and repair-deficiency disorder. Skin lesions, forming spontaneously or in response to friction, may show a generalized or a localized distribution, particularly on the hands, feet or pretibial areas.

Type VII collagen mutations and phenotype—genotype correlations in the dystrophic subtypes”. Although her skin disease was equally as severe as her sister’s, she did not develop amyloid nephropathy until the age of 35 years.

Frequence de mutation de la chondrodystrophie et de l’epidermolyse bulleuse dans une population du sud de la Suede. All forms are caused by mutation in the COL7A1 gene.

Fatal systemic amyloidosis AA type in two sisters with dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa. Alone we are rare. In family members with dystrophic changes limited to the toenails but without skin fragility, they identified heterozygosity for the glycine substitutions GR Epidermolysis bullosa dystrophica dominans Pasini –a primary structural defect of the anchoring fibrils.

If possible, air conditioned environments should be sought whenever possible. Seven patients had features of both dominant and recessive forms of disease and were found to carry both dominant and recessive mutations. An year-old girl had neck, axilla, groin, and oral blistering with sparing of the hands and feet as well as sparing of the rest of the body. No albopapuloid lesions were observed, consistent with the Cockayne-Touraine variant.


One recipient died at days after transplant from graft rejection and infection. Epidermolysis bullosa dystrophica, AR. Epidermolyais, there is no cure for EB. Inspection of the location of the glycine substitutions did not show a positional effect in terms of phenotype or pattern of inheritance.

In dystrophoca Dutch kindreds with intrafamilial characteristics of both the Cockayne-Touraine type and the Bart type of autosomal dominant dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa, Gruis et al.

However, clinical features included blisters, milia, atrophic scarring, nail dystrophy, and oral and conjunctival involvement, as seen in dystrophic EB.

Epidermolysis bullosa dystrophica is a clinically heterogeneous disorder characterized by blistering and scarring of the skin and mucous membranes in response to mechanical force.

This expression was stable for the week duration of the experiment. Diagnostic methods Diagnosis is suspected at clinical examination. Because blisters in EB are not self-limiting, and can fill with fluid and grow quite large, they need to be drained. There is a wide epixermolysis of JEB- O. Histopathologic examination of affected skin showed blister formation below vullosa basal lamina, and electron microscopy of nonblistered skin showed a paucity of anchoring fibrils at the subbasal lamina region.

Ichthyosis bullosa of Siemens Rpidermolysis follicularis Ichthyosis prematurity syndrome Ichthyosis—sclerosing cholangitis syndrome Nonbullous congenital ichthyosiform erythroderma Ichthyosis linearis circumflexa Ichthyosis hystrix.

Collagenase expression in skin fibroblasts from families with recessive dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa. Seven patients had features of both dominant and recessive forms of disease and were found to carry both dominant and recessive mutations.

By linkage studies, Colombi et al. 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.


One patient had skin missing from the left thumb and both feet at birth, showing phenotypic overlap with Bart syndrome Affected individuals are often severely malnourished due to trauma to the oral and esophageal mucosa and require feeding tubes for nutrition. Unlike parent cells from these patients, the gene-corrected cells had normal morphology, proliferative potential, matrix attachment, and motility.


Resources RareConnect offers a safe patient-hosted online community for patients and caregivers affected by this rare disease. In addition to scarring, milia, mucous membrane involvement and nail dystrophy, common manifestations include malnutrition, anemia, esophageal strictures, growth retardation, webbing or fusion of the fingers and toes causing mitten deformity pseudosyndactyly with loss of function, development of contractures, malformation of teeth, microstomia and corneal abrasions.

Electron microscopy showed tissue separation below the basal lamina, as epidermloysis as rudimentary and decreased numbers of anchoring fibrils. EB simplex epudermolysis resulting from a mutation in the type VII collagen gene.

Epidermolysis bullosa dystrophica

Ueber den erbgang bei epidermolysis bullosa hereditaria. Remaining fibrils were hypoplastic and reduced in diameter. Mutations were found in 1 or both alleles in C ] – See also dominant DEBan allelic disorder with a less severe phenotype.

The examples he used from dermatology to illustrate electron microscopic abnormalities in dominant disorders were structural defects of tonofibrils in nullosa ichthyoses, of the anchoring fibrils in dominant dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa of Pasini, and of keratohyalin in autosomal dominant ichthyosis vulgaris Bouwes Bavinck et al.

Secretion of glycosaminoglycans by the cells was also increased. CCCC ]. About News Events Contact. Urban und Epidermolysiw pub.

The cells appeared to ba hematopoietic in origin, but their identity could not be fully determined. Skin and mucosal involvement can lead to anemia, iron deficiency and growth delay. Heterozygous carriers of the GR allele had normal skin but isolated toenail dystrophy, also called nonsyndromic congenital nail dystrophy-8 NDNC8; Infants presenting with pyloric atresia will have trouble with feeding and abdominal distension as neonates and present as surgical emergencies in the newborn period.

It is important to work with a nutritionist experienced in the care of special needs patients.
