Epider molysis Bullosa Dystrophica in a Chinese Neonate

KLE Hon, PCL Choi, A Burd, NM Luk


Abstract

Epidermolysis bullosa dystrophica (EBD) is a rare blistering disease that may present in the neonatal period. Diagnosis is based on clinical symptomatology, histopathology, electromicroscopy and genetic studies. Age of onset, symptomatology and prognosis of the various subtypes are varied. We describe a case of EBD diagnosed in the neonatal period and discuss the many issues associated with the disease. A multidisciplinary approach with inputs from the neonatologists, paediatricians, dermatologists, plastic surgeons, dietitians, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, and special nurses are required to assure optimal outcome.
