EB Skin Lesson

This Chart shows the layers of skin and the various locations that the skin will detach due to the inability of the anchoring filaments to hook the layers together.

The main forms of EB are:
EB Simplex, Junctional EB, and Dystrophic EB(
Dominant or Recessive).
EB Simplex occurs in the outer layer of skin;
Junctional EB and Dystrophic EB occur in the basement membrane zone.

This information was borrowed from a Dept of Health Pamphlet on EB.
