Background: Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) is a genetically determined mechano-bullous disorder of the skin encompassing a group of conditions that share skin fragility as a common feature. Materials and Methods: Twele patients with Epidermolysis Bullosa from Kashmir valley are reported. Results: Our series included 12 patients, 5 males and 7 females. Features were consistent with EB simplex in 8 patients, EB pruriginosa in 2 patients, generalized atrophic benign EB in one patient and EB acquista in one patient. Conclusion: EB is a rare, genetically determined, blistering disorder affecting both males and females with predominant involvement of hands and feet. In the absence of specific therapy, treatment mainly involves avoidance of provoking factors, prevention and treatment of complications.
