Epidermolysis bullosa, a genetically determined skin fragility disorder can severely incapacitate the life of the afflicted patient. Although the clinical features are multiple and varied, treatment still remains a major challenge. There have been major changes in the classification of the disease recently. Although there is still a long way to go, good nursing care, and gene therapy could possibly significantly alleviate the suffering of the patients in the future.
