Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) Center

The University of Minnesota Masonic Children's Hospital is an international leader in the treatment of epidermolysis bullosa (EB), an often life-threatening skin-blistering disorder.

If your child has severe epidermolysis bullosa, we’re here to help. The University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital offers a team of specialists and staff who have over 10 years of experience coordinating care and managing the unique needs of EB patients.

While the majority of EB treatments focus on topical therapies, we were the first to explore using bone marrow transplant to provide a whole-body therapy that could address symptoms inside and out. Since 2007, we have treated over 60 patients.

Our physicians work closely with our scientists and researchers worldwide to continually improve care and treatment options.
