Type/Epidermolysis Bullosa Acquisita (EBA)


Epidermolysis Bullosa Acquisita (EBA)

Epidermolysis Bullosa Acquisita (EBA) is another rare type of Epidermolysis Bullosa, which isn't inherited. Blistering associated with this condition occurs as the result of the immune system mistakenly attacking healthy tissue. It is similar to a condition called ‘bullous pemphigoid’, which also is related to an immune system disorder. EBA has been associated with Crohn's disease, an inflammatory bowel disease.
