Epidermolysis bullosa or “butterfly” skin

Epidermolysis bullosa (EB) encompasses a range of genetic diseases characterised by excessive fragility of the skin and mucous membranes when subjected to minimal trauma. The disease appears at birth or during the first few years of life, and lasts a lifetime. Prognosis is variable, but tends to be serious. Life expectancy is 50 years, and the disease brings with it complications related to infections, nutrition and neoplastic complications. There is currently no effective treatment available.
