EB stems from genetic defects affecting skin adhesion molecules, leading to blister formation. There are four main types of EB, each associated with specific sites of blister formation within the skin structure. These types are Epidermolysis bullosa simplex (EBS), Junctional epidermolysis bullosa (JEB), Dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa (DEB), and Kindler syndrome. Each type has various subtypes with different degrees of severity.
