Epidermolysis Bullosa Puriginosa is a genetic mechanobullous disease characterized by pruritus, lichenified or nodular prurigo-like lesions, occasional trauma-induced blistering, excoriations, milia, nail dystrophy and albopapuloid lesions that appear at birth or later. Scarring and prurigo are most prominent on the shins. Herein, we report a case with a history of blisters since childhood followed by intensely pruritic lesions predominantly on the shins and dystrophy of the toenails, milia, excoriations and diffuse post-lesional hyper and hypopigmentation.

Keywords: dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa puriginosa, pruritis, dermal–epidermal junction
