Epidermolysis bullosa (EB) comprises a group of genetically determined skin fragility disorders, characterized by blistering of the skin and mucosae following mechanical trauma, which includes four major forms (EB simplex, junctional EB [JEB], dystrophic EB, and Kindler syndrome) with various distinctive clinical phenotypes. We report a rare case of a 15-year-old female diagnosed as JEB (generalized intermediate), with the help of immunofluorescence antigen mapping.
