Suicidality in Epidermolysis Bullosa Pruriginosa: Unusual Presentation in a Rare Disorder

Abstract

Depression in association with dermatologic disease is not uncommon and increases the morbidity and mortality. Early recognition and treatment of depression associated with dermatological disorders can lead to improved therapeutic outcomes and avert disastrous consequences including suicide. We wish to report a case of a young man with Epidermolysis bullosa pruriginosa who attempted suicide due to secondary depression and improved significantly after management of depression.
