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.

Blisters can form anywhere on the surface of the skin, within the oral cavity and in more severe forms may also involve the external surface of the eye, as well as the respiratory, gastrointestinal and genitourinary tracts. There is a spectrum of severity, and within each type, one may be either mildly or severely affected. Other search option s Alphabetical list.

Bouwes Bavinck et al. Affected individuals in a second family showed blistering tendency from birth that continued through childhood and diminished slightly with age. Toenail dystrophy with COL7A1 glycine substitution mutations segregates as an autosomal dominant trait in 2 families with dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa.

DDEB is usually mild.

Microscopic examination of the skin shows cleavage below the basement membrane within the papillary dermis. Inherited epidermolysis bullosa is the focus of this report. Medical Genetics Information Resource database online. Anton-Lamprecht ; Book ; Davison ; Didolkar et dystropjica. Affected Populations Some type of EB occurs in an estimated 1 out of every 50, live births. Bauer and Eisen observed enhanced collagenase production by cultured skin fibroblasts in 8 of 10 patients dystrophjca autosomal recessive dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa.


Recessive dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa: Autosomal recessive epidermolysis bullosa dystrophica is an allelic disorder. Inspection of the location of the glycine substitutions did not show a positional effect in terms of phenotype or pattern of inheritance.


bulloza Jumana Al-Aama – updated: The teeth were not clinically abnormal or malformed and showed no evidence of generalized enamel hypoplasia.

During the neonatal period and infancy it may also include aplasia cutis congenita, herpes simplex infection, epidermolytic ichthyosis, bullous impetigo, staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome, linear IgA bullous dermatosis, bullous pemphigoid, neonatal pemphigus and pemphigoid gestationis see these terms.

Copyright, University of Washington, Seattle. Heterozygous carriers of the GR allele had normal skin but isolated toenail dystrophy, also called nonsyndromic congenital nail dystrophy-8 NDNC8; Prognosis depends on the subtype.

A similarly affected sister died at the age of 26 years from metastatic squamous cell carcinoma. Two families were compound heterozygous for a glycine substitution and a premature termination mutation see, e.

The disorder was of the severe Hallopeau-Siemens form in 5 families and the generalized nonmutilating form in 1. About News Events Contact. Surgical management epidermolysjs epidermolysis bullosa: Recurrent nonsense mutations within the type VII collagen gene in patients with severe recessive dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa.


A number dysstrophica is used with this entry because autosomal recessive dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa RDEB and the RDEB localisata variant are caused by homozygous or compound heterozygous mutation in the gene encoding type VII collagen COL7A1; on chromosome 3p These results supported the idea that certain glycine substitutions in the collagenous domain of COL7A1 cause a limited nail deformity, and that these alleles can also contribute to variable degrees of skin fragility when present dysrophica combination with nonsense or frameshift mutations in COL7A1.

This expression was stable for the week duration of the experiment. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Epidermolysis bullosa simplex superficialis: Mutations were found in 1 or both alleles in Other entities represented in this entry: Electron microscopy showed epidemolysis separation below the basal lamina, as well as rudimentary and decreased numbers of anchoring fibrils. Albopapuloid lesions were reported independently in a subset of DDEB patients by Pasini and Maschkilleisson Only comments seeking to improve the quality and accuracy of information on the Orphanet website are accepted.
