Dermatol Sinica 13: 213-222, 1995

We herein report a case with a highly distinctive phenotype of dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa (DEB). A 31-year-old woman who had experienced moderate to severe pruritus for the past 20 years. Blisters, erosions and subesquent striking anastomosing linear raised scars, lichenified or nodular prurigo-like lesions were present mainly on the shins and the extensor of forearms. Her father and a youndger brother have similar but less severe lesions. DEB was confirmed by electron microscopy and immunofluorescence study. The diagnosis is considered as a subtype of DEB, similar to the cases described recently as "epidermolysis bullosa pruriginosa" by McGrath et al.
