  Purpose

OBJECTIVES: I. Develop a large roster of well-characterized patients with various forms of inherited and acquired epidermolysis bullosa (EB).

II. Generate a large data bank of clinical, historical, and genetic information concerning these patients.

Detailed Description:

PROTOCOL OUTLINE: Patients are enrolled by mail or clinic visit at 1 of 4 clinical centers. Clinical, epidemiological, and laboratory data are collected.

Medical and family histories are obtained in a detailed interview in person, by phone, or by mail. Diagnostic studies to confirm the type of epidermolysis bullosa are performed as indicated. A pedigree chart is completed on the first affected family member entered.

Selected patients are followed at least biannually. A study duration of approximately 10 years is anticipated.
