Welcome to the Epidermolysis Bullosa Clinic

Epidermolysis bullosa (EB) is a rare genetic skin disorder that causes extreme skin fragility, leading to recurrent blister formation with even minor trauma. There are three major forms of EB: EB simplex (EBS), Junctional EB (JEB), and Dystrophic EB (DEB). Each type of EB differs in severity and clinical presentation. Caring for all patients with EB requires a multidisciplinary approach.
