Secrets of the cutaneous basement membrane

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debate


The paper in this issue by Has and co-workers reports 15 non-Herlitz epidermolysis bullosa patients with the same single amino-acid substitution in collagen XVII, all of whom presented with clinical and pathological features resembling Kindler syndrome. Here we consider why and how a hemidesmosomal pathology can mimic a focal adhesion bond disease, both clinically and ultrastructurally.
