NIH Rare Diseases:44 Epidermolysis bullosa simplex (ebs) is one of the major forms of epidermolysis bullosa, a group of genetic conditions that cause the skin to be very fragile and to blister easily. ebs is classified into two groups of subtypes by the layer of skin at which the peeling originates. the basal subtypes cause skin peeling at the lower layers of the epidermis. the most common basal subtypes include ebs localized, dowling meara ebs, generalized other ebs and ebs with muscular dystrophy. more rarely seen basal subtypes include ebs with mottled pigmentation, ebs with pyloic atreseia, ebs ogna, and ebs circinate migratory.the suprabasal subtypes cause skin peeling at the upper layers of the epidermis and include the rare forms known as lethal acantolythic eb, plakophilin deficiency, and ebs superficialis (ebss). symptoms of ebs range from mild in the weber-cockayne type to severe with blistering that is present at birth or after. milder phenotypes of ebs have blistering confined to the limbs, whereas in the most severe dowling meara type, blisters may also form in the mouth. all of the types are typically caused by mutations in the krt5 and krt14 genes. they are usually inherited in anĀ autosomal dominant pattern, butĀ autosomal recessive inheritance has occurred in rare cases. treatment plans differ depending on severity but typicallyĀ focus on preventing formation of blisters, caring for blistered skin, and treating infection. last updated: 7/22/2011

MalaCards: Epidermolysis Bullosa Simplex, also known as EBS, is related to epidermolysis bullosa and epidermolysis bullosa simplex, generalized, and has symptoms including abnormal fingernails, gastric/pyloric stenosis and absent/small fingernails/anonychia of hands. An important gene associated with Epidermolysis Bullosa Simplex is KRT14 (keratin 14), and among its related pathways are Glucocorticoid receptor regulatory network and Corticotropin-releasing hormone. The compounds isotretinoin and hematoxylin have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include skin, breast and testes, and related mouse phenotypes are pigmentation and digestive/alimentary.

Genetics Home Reference:22 Epidermolysis bullosa simplex is one of a group of genetic conditions called epidermolysis bullosa that cause the skin to be very fragile and to blister easily. Blisters and areas of skin loss (erosions) occur in response to minor injury or friction, such as rubbing or scratching. Epidermolysis bullosa simplex is one of the major forms of epidermolysis bullosa. The signs and symptoms of this condition vary widely among affected individuals. Blistering primarily affects the hands and feet in mild cases, and the blisters usually heal without leaving scars. Severe cases of this condition involve widespread blistering that can lead to infections, dehydration, and other medical problems. Severe cases may be life-threatening in infancy.
