Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) Center
EB Specialty Clinic
Children brought to our center with a confirmed diagnosis of EB will receive a thorough examination to evaluate the severity of their EB. This may include skin biopsies, blister testing, medical photography, and blood tests. Patients will be also seen by specialists from a variety of different services depending on their needs. Common examples include seeing gastroenterologist for esophageal strictures or an ophthalmologist for corneal injury.
We primarily treat the most severe forms of recessive dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa and some kinds of junctional epidermolysis bullosa. To evaluate if the therapies we offer are appropriate for your situation, we will need a genetic diagnosis of the disorder. If you are coming to our center without a confirmed diagnosis, we will help you navigate the necessary testing and ensure you have all of the resources needed to care for your child. Sometimes it is better to have the testing done prior to the visit.
