Abstract

The integument is often overlooked when focusing on the clinical features of EB, but there are important clinical clues to the subtyping of EB which may be gleaned from these tissues, as well as special complications. One of the areas of the body that is not affected by EB is the placenta and amnion, yet there are still many questions related to pregnancy in EB which few books address, which are answered here.
