An autosomal recessive inherited skin disorder caused by mutations in the genes encoding keratins 5 and 14, collagen VII or laminin 5. No further hereditarua are allowed.

Data are compiled from the following standard references: Genetic counseling is the process of providing individuals and families with information on the nature, inheritance, and implications of genetic disorders to help them make informed medical and personal decisions.

A second transplant has also been performed on the child’s older brother, and a third transplant is scheduled for a California baby.

Prevention of secondary complications: See Molecular Genetics for information on allelic variants detected in this gene. In people born with EB, the two skin layers lack the protein anchors that hold them together, resulting in extremely fragile skin—even minor mechanical friction like rubbing or pressure or trauma will separate the layers of the skin and form blisters and painful sores.

Other search option s Alphabetical list. Blistering can be severe enough to result in neonatal or infant death. Prognosis varies considerably and is based on both EB subtype and the overall health of the patient. No phenotypes other than those discussed in this GeneReview are known to be associated with pathogenic variants in EXPH5.


Although it is now recognized that these phenotypes are part of a continuum with overlapping features, it is reasonable to continue to think of EBS in terms of the phenotypes in order to provide affected individuals with information about the expected clinical course.

EBS caused by pathogenic variants in KRT5 or KRT14 is usually inherited in an autosomal dominant manner, but in rare families especially those with consanguinity it can be inherited in an autosomal recessive manner.

Excessive heat may exacerbate blistering and infection. The KRT5 recurrent pathogenic missense variant p. In EBS-loc, blisters are rarely present or minimal at birth and may occur on the knees and shins with crawling or on the feet at approximately age 18 months; some individuals manifest the disease in adolescence or early adulthood.

In JEB-gen sev, the classic severe form of JEB, blisters are present at birth or become apparent in the neonatal period. GeneReviews staff have not independently verified the classification of variants. Fewer than ten pathogenic variants have been described throughout the gene ; to date, all have been null variants.


Course Chronic waxing and waning course. Acantolisi bollosaEpidermolisi bollosa.


Autosomal recessive pathogenic variants in TGM5 are often missense variants that affect the crosslinking capabilities of the enzyme. In most cases of EBS, diagnosis using immunofluorescent microscopy is made by mapping the blister.

Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Supportive care to protect the skin from blistering; use of dressings that will not further damage the skin and will promote healing of open wounds. Oral erythromycin therapy in epidermolysis bullosa simplex generalized severe. The risk to other family members depends on the status of the proband ‘s parents: Autosomal recessive inheritance is suspected in pedigrees showing consanguinity and affected sibs born to unaffected parents.

A pilot study performed in suggests that systemic granulocyte-colony stimulating factor G-CSF may promote increased wound healing in patients with dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa. Genetic basis of Bart’s syndrome: Epidermolysis bullosa simplex associated with pyloric atresia is a novel clinical subtype caused by mutations in the plectin gene PLEC1.
