Immunological mechanisms underlying progression of chronic wounds in recessive dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa.

Exp Dermatol 2021 Jun 17. Epub 2021 Jun 17.

Department of Dermatology and Cutaneous Biology, Sidney Kimmel Medical College, Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, PA, USA.

Hereditary epidermolysis bullosa (EB) is a mechanobullous skin fragility disorder characterized by defective epithelial adhesion, leading to mechanical stress-induced skin blistering. Based on the level of tissue separation within the dermal-epidermal junction, EB is categorized into simplex (EBS), junctional (JEB), dystrophic (DEB), and Kindler syndrome. There is no cure for EB, and painful chronic cutaneous wounds are one of the major complications in recessive (RDEB) patients. Read More

Topical sucralfate cream treatment for aplasia cutis congenita with dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa: a case study.

J Wound Care 2018 11;27(11):768-771

Associate Professor, Haydarpasa Numune Training and Research Hospital, Department of Pediatric Clinic, Istanbul, Turkey.

Bart syndrome consists of aplasia cutis congenita (ACC) and dominant or recessive dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa (DEB), associated with skin fragility and nail dysplasia. ACC in DEB is thought to be caused by trauma, the most cited cause being in utero formation of bullae consequent to friction of the limbs. Epidermolysis bullosa (EB) refers to a hereditary mechanobullous disease following trauma, characterised by formation of blisters on the skin and mucous membranes. Read More
