Inherited epidermolysis bullosa (EB) is a group of rare genetic diseases in which the skin is mechanically very fragile, resulting in chronic blister formation. In the most severe cases, affected persons may also experience disease involvement of other organs, cancer, and even premature death. This examination of EB employs a large research study population and uses epidemiological and biostatistical research principles. It also assesses more than 2000 patients with EB.
