Dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa is a rare blistering condition caused by mutations in the COL7A1 gene. Different clinical variants have been described, with dominant and recessive inheritance, but no consistent findings have been elucidated to establish a genotype-phenotype correlation. We present three unrelated patients with two identical pathogenic compound heterozygous mutations in the COL7A1 gene that developed different clinical forms of dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa-epidermolysis bullosa pruriginosa and mild recessive non-Hallopeau-Siemens-raising the possibility of other genetic or environmental modifying factors responsible for the phenotype of the disease.

Epidermolysis bullosa is a group of inherited blistering skin diseases resulting in most cases from missense mutations in KRT5 and KRT14 genes encoding the basal epidermal keratins 5 and 14. Here, we ...
Recessive dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa is a rare and severe genetic skin disease resulting in blistering of the skin and mucosa. Recessive dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa (RDEB) is caused by a wi...
Dominant mutations in the KLHL24 gene, encoding for kelch-like protein 24, have been implicated in the pathogenesis of epidermolysis bullosa simplex (EBS). So far, 26 patients from different ethniciti...
Absence of collagen VII causes blistering of the skin, eyes and many other tissues. This disease is termed dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa (DEB). Corneal fibrosis occurs in up to 41% and vision loss ...
Dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa (DEB) is a group of diseases caused by genetic mutations in the gene for type VII collagen. DEB can be severe or mild with the recessive disease usually be...
Recessive dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa (RDEB) is a severe form of blistering skin disease caused by mutations in COL7A1 gene. This study aims to assess the safety of intradermal inject...
This is a phase I open-label study to evaluate the safety of ALLO-ASC-DFU in patients with Dystrophic Epidermolysis Bullosa.
Recessive dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa (RDEB) is an incurable, devastating, inherited skin disease for which there is only supportive care. RDEB is due to mutations in COL7A1 gene that...
Recessive dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa (RDEB) is an incurable, devastating, inherited skin disease caused by mutations in the COL7A1 gene that encodes for type VII collagen (C7), the m...
Form of epidermolysis bullosa characterized by atrophy of blistered areas, severe scarring, and nail changes. It is most often present at birth or in early infancy and occurs in both autosomal dominant and recessive forms. All forms of dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa result from mutations in COLLAGEN TYPE VII, a major component fibrils of BASEMENT MEMBRANE and EPIDERMIS.
A form of epidermolysis bullosa characterized by serous bullae that heal without scarring. Mutations in the genes that encode KERATIN-5 and KERATIN-14 have been associated with several subtypes of epidermolysis bullosa simplex.
Group of genetically determined disorders characterized by the blistering of skin and mucosae. There are four major forms: acquired, simple, junctional, and dystrophic. Each of the latter three has several varieties.
A group of HEREDITARY AUTOINFLAMMATION DISEASES, characterized by recurrent fever, abdominal pain, headache, rash, PLEURISY; and ARTHRITIS. ORCHITIS; benign MENINGITIS; and AMYLOIDOSIS may also occur. Homozygous or compound heterozygous mutations in marenostrin gene result in autosomal recessive transmission; simple heterozygous, autosomal dominant form of the disease.
Form of epidermolysis bullosa characterized by trauma-induced, subepidermal blistering with no family history of the disease. Direct immunofluorescence shows IMMUNOGLOBULIN G deposited at the dermo-epidermal junction.
Bioinformatics is the application of computer software and hardware to the management of biological data to create useful information. Computers are used to gather, store, analyze and integrate biological and genetic information which can then be applied...
