Generalized atrophic benign epidermolysis bullosa (GABEB) is a rare autosomal recessive variant of junctional epidermolysis bullosa. A typical feature in these patients is the cicatricial alopecia resembling male pattern baldness: in this paper we describe a case of GABEB with particular attention to this characteristic.
