Dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa (DEB), caused by mutations in the gene encoding type VII collagen (COL7A1), is known to show heterogeneous clinical phenotypes. Certain correlations between the nature or position of COL7A1 mutations and the resultant DEB phenotypes have been suggested, although such relationships may be more complex than initially thought… CONTINUE READING
