With a severe course of the pathological process, infectious complications occur together. Then everything ends with a fatal outcome almost after the birth of the child, or he forever remains disabled. With a mild form, you can live a full life, but periodically you need to carry out appropriate therapy.
The first type is characterized by the formation of blisters on the feet and hands. In infancy, the pathology practically does not manifest itself, sometimes erosions can occur in the tongue for no apparent reason. The main symptoms begin to develop during puberty. In the generalized type of simple epidermolysis bullosa, sores can form over the entire surface of the body in groups or randomly. This type of disease often leads to skin cancer. Congenital bullous epidermolysis manifests itself immediately after the birth of the baby. Erosive rashes spread throughout the body and even affect the nails. After drug therapy, the formations successfully pass without leaving a trace.
The borderline type of epidermolysis is on the border of dystrophic and simple forms. There are two subtypes - Gertlitz and Non-Gertlitz. The first of them is characterized by a severe course and a high mortality rate. Regardless of the variety of the borderline form, bubbles form on any part of the body and are distinguished by their scale.
Over time, the rapid course and growth of ulcers leads to complications: In the dystrophic type of epidermolysis bullosa, the risk of developing skin cancer remains, which leads to an increase in mortality among patients.
With Kindler's syndrome, the baby is born with blisters already formed on the skin. In the future, the lesion covers even larger areas of the epidermis. The child develops sensitivity to light, pigmentation and atrophy of the upper layer of the skin, scars form on the nails. Complications pass to the internal organs of the patient (gastrointestinal tract, genitourinary system).
