Abstract

Epidermolysis bullosa is an inherited mucocutaneous disorder characterized by blister formation due to a defect in collagen metabolism. Each of the three major subtypes of epidermolysis bullosa has distinct clinical and oral manifestations. A case report of the most classic form of epidermolysis bullosa, recessive dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa, is presented here, along with a review of the literature on the clinical features and management of the condition. An attempt has been made to highlight the anesthetic and oral surgical considerations when treating a patient with epidermolysis bullosa.
