Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) is a rare group of inherited disorders that manifests as blistering or erosion of the skin and, in some cases, the epithelial lining of other organs, in response to little or no apparent trauma. However, the term "epidermolysis" is not correct as epidermal disruption is not the primary change in two of the main categories of EB. Currently, there is no definitive and curative treatment for EB. Hence, the mainstay of treatment is symptomatic, supportive and preventive. The major challenge encountered in the care of a neonate with EB is optimum skin care and expert nursing care.
