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.

The findings confirmed that the 2 clinical forms of the disorder are allelic. If an individual receives one normal gene and one gene for the disease, the person will be a carrier for the disease but usually will not show symptoms.

Two families were compound heterozygous for a glycine substitution and a premature termination mutation see, e. Check this box if you wish to receive a copy of your message.

Although a second pathogenic mutation was not identified, the bulloas presenting convincing evidence that the disorder was recessive in both cases. Instead, wounds should be covered with an appropriate non-adhesive dressing and then further wrapped loosely with rolled gauze. For further information contact the following: One recipient died at days after transplant from graft rejection and infection. A study of the linkage relations of epidermolysis bullosa dystrophica.

The authors suggested that the likely cause for the cardiomyopathy was a micronutrient deficiency, most probably selenium deficiency, because the serum selenium level was reduced in the case in which they measured it, and also in 14 of 25 other children with dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa.


Her 2-year-old son developed blisters 3 days after birth.

Rare Disease Database

blulosa Currently, there is no cure for EB. The examples he used from dermatology to illustrate electron microscopic abnormalities in dominant disorders were structural defects of tonofibrils in hystrix-like ichthyoses, of the anchoring fibrils in dominant dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa of Pasini, and of keratohyalin in autosomal dominant ichthyosis vulgaris The following are recommended ways to avoid or minimize this problem:.

Epidermolysis bullosa dystrophica, AR.

Patients also developed strictures of the gastrointestinal tract from mucosal involvement, which can lead to poor nutrition. Collagen VII is a very large molecule kDa that dimerizes to form a semicircular looping structure: In a large Finnish family with autosomal dominant dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa of the Cockayne-Touraine type, Ryynanen et al.

Genetic linkage analysis of epidermolysis bullosa dystrophica, Cockayne-Touraine type. Mitten deformities of the paws were found to result from soft tissue accumulation and contraction due to aberrant fibrosis that accompanied wound healing. Other patients have selenium and carnitine or vitamin D deficiencies which may predispose them to cardiomyopathy and osteoporosis.

Expert curators review the literature and organize it to facilitate your work. There are rare recessive forms. At age 17 years, she developed multiple white albopapuloid lesions on her back, consistent with the Pasini variant. Hand deformities can be treated surgically, but have a high recurrence. The skin of DEB epidermklysis is thus highly susceptible to severe blistering. Health care resources for this disease Bullowa centres 97 Diagnostic tests 46 Patient organisations 43 Orphan drug s Extracutaneous manifestations and complications of inherited epidermolysis bullosa: Hoffman first described an autosomal dominant form of epidermolysis bullosa see also von Verschuer, Homozygous mice appeared normal at birth, but developed blisters on the paws by 24 to 48 hours after birth.


Specialised Social Services Eurordis directory. She had had severe and recurrent esophageal stenosis. During the neonatal period and infancy it may also include aplasia cutis congenita, herpes simplex infection, bulloaa ichthyosis, bullous impetigo, staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome, linear IgA bullous dermatosis, bullous pemphigoid, neonatal pemphigus and pemphigoid gestationis see these terms.

Fatal systemic amyloidosis AA type in two epifermolysis with dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa. However, Winberg et al. Copyright, University of Washington, Seattle.

Fingernails were normal or minimally involved, whereas toenails were mildly to moderately dystrophic or atrophic. All forms are caused by mutation in the COL7A1 gene. In the family with 3 affected sibs in which linkage studies excluded the involvement of the collagenase locus on 11q22, Hovnanian et al. Phenytoin, which was found to inhibit synthesis or secretion of collagenase, had been thought to be effective in the systemic treatment of RDEB Bauer et al.


Echocardiographic screening of 18 other patients with recessive dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa showed no evidence of cardiomyopathy. For all other comments, please send your remarks via contact us. Toenail dystrophy with COL7A1 glycine substitution mutations segregates as an autosomal dominant trait in 2 families with dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa.

Investigational Therapies Stem cell transplant therapy trials epidermplysis recessive dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa are being conducted at at least two institutions. Obligate heterozygous parents were clinically unaffected. Glycine substitutions epidermolysiz the triple-helical region of type VII bulloosa result in a spectrum of dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa phenotypes and patterns of inheritance.

Recently, several suprabasal types of EBS have been described as well. C ] – See also recessive DEBan allelic disorder with a more severe phenotype. Junctional epidermolysis bullosa Laryngoonychocutaneous syndrome.

Epidermolysis bullosa dystrophica

Skin biopsies showed subbasal lamina dermal-epidermal separation with no anchoring fibrils. Affected Populations Some type of EB occurs in an estimated 1 out of every 50, live births. In 2 brothers with recessive DEB inversa, Kahofer et al. In family members with dystrophic changes limited epidermolysiz the toenails but without skin fragility, they identified heterozygosity for the glycine substitutions GR
