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.

Recessive dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa RDEB Also known as “Hallopeau—Siemens variant of epidermolysis bullosa” [11] and “Hallopeau—Siemens disease”, [12] this variant results from mutations in the gene encoding type VII collagen, COL7A1, characterized by debilitating oral lesions that produce pain, scarring, and microstomia.

Epidermolysis bullosa dystrophica – Wikipedia

This expression was stable for the week duration of the experiment. An year-old girl fpidermolysis neck, axilla, groin, and oral blistering with sparing of the hands and feet as well as sparing of the rest of the body.

Journal of Medical Genetics. Diagnosis Clinical diagnosis of the type of EB based dyystrophica presentation in the neonatal period should be avoided as all types of EB may look alike in this age group. This page was last edited on 1 Juneat Mutations in this gene alter the function, reduce or disrupt the production of collagen VII. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Bethlem myopathy Ullrich congenital muscular dystrophy. Glycine substitutions in the triple-helical region of type VII collagen result in a spectrum of dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa dytrophica and patterns of inheritance.

Instead, wounds should be covered with an appropriate non-adhesive dressing and then further wrapped loosely with rolled gauze.

Any blistering disorder in systrophica newborn period may mimic EB. A bonus to all MIMmatch users is the option to sign up for updates on new gene-phenotype relationships. 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.


Phenytoin therapy of recessive dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa: In affected members of a large 5-generation Finnish family reported by Ryynanen et al. The microscopic changes were said to be similar to those of the Hallopeau-Siemens form of epidermolysis bullosa.

By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Bulloosa. Hand deformities can be treated surgically, but have a high recurrence.

Dominant dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa: The documents contained in this web site are presented for information purposes only. Non-adhesive bandages and dressings: The disorder was of the severe Hallopeau-Siemens form in 5 families and the generalized nonmutilating form in 1.

Autosomal recessive epidermolysis bullosa dystrophica is an allelic disorder. However, Martinez-Mir et al. Unfortunately, it is not free to produce. Medical Genetics Information Resource database online. 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.

If possible, air conditioned environments epidrrmolysis be sought whenever possible.


Epidermolysis bullosa dystrophica, AD. Novel glycine substitution mutations in COL7A1 reveal that the Pasini and Cockayne-Touraine variants of dominant dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa are allelic. Blisters occur within the lower layer of the skin, the dermis. Bouwes Bavinck et al. We need long-term secure funding to provide you the information that you need at your fingertips.

Urban und Schwarzenberg pub. Exclusion of stromelysin-1, stromelysin-2, interstitial collagenase and fibronectin genes as the mutant loci in a family with epiddermolysis epidermolysis bullosa dystrophica and a form of cerebellar ataxia. While the OMIM database is open to the public, users seeking information about a personal medical or genetic condition are urged to consult with a qualified physician for diagnosis and for answers to personal questions.


Rare Disease Database

Diseases of collagenepidermolysia and other scleroproteins. Recurrent nonsense mutations within the type VII collagen gene in patients with severe recessive dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa.

Junctional epidermolysis bullosa Laryngoonychocutaneous syndrome. Although both families had some clinical features of the Pasini type, there was considerable interfamilial and intrafamilial variability. Microscopic examination of the skin shows cleavage below the dystrohpica membrane within the papillary dermis. The deficiency in anchoring fibrils impairs the adherence between the epidermis and the underlying dermis. Last Update Nov 4, The skin involvement led to extensive mutilating scarring, loss of nails, fusion of the digits, and joint contractures.

Epidermolysis bullosa dystrophica

Davison reported 6 families with dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa, including 4 showing autosomal dominant inheritance and 2 showing autosomal recessive inheritance. Differential diagnosis The differential diagnosis includes other forms of EB. Fingernails were normal or minimally involved, whereas toenails were mildly to moderately dystrophic or atrophic.

Genetic correction of canine dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa mediated by retroviral vectors. Skin biopsies showed subbasal lamina dermal-epidermal separation with no anchoring fibrils. Whenever possible, loose-fitting garments should be worn. Lucky, MD or Richard G.

Synonyms of Epidermolysis Bullosa EB. Toenail dystrophy with COL7A1 glycine substitution mutations segregates as an autosomal dominant trait in 2 families with 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. Management with intensive lubricant therapy, soft-bandage contact lenses, and cataract extraction successfully restored her sight.
