Epidermolysis Bullosa Simplex, Localized

Description

Epidermolysis bullosa simplex is a clinically and genetically heterogeneous skin disorder characterized by blistering of the skin following minor physical trauma as a result of cytolysis within the basal epidermal cells. Most forms show autosomal dominant inheritance. The localized form is characterized by localized blistering primarily on the hands and feet (Pfendner et al., 2005). The other 2 main types of EBS include the milder generalized Koebner type (OMIM ) and the more severe Dowling-Meara type (OMIM ). All 3 forms can be caused by mutation in the KRT5 or KRT14 genes (summary by Fine et al., 2008).
