An encephalocele is a rare congenital (present at birth) type of neural tube defect where part of the skull has not formed properly so a portion of brain tissue and associated structures are outside the skull. The protruding sac may be covered with skin or it may be covered with a thin membrane. This information sheet from Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) explains the causes, symptoms and treatment of encephalocele and where to get help.
Epidermolysis bullosa (EB) is a group of inherited disorders in which the skin blisters extremely easily. There are four main types of EB. Each is a quite distinct disorder. If someone has dystrophic EB then they cannot later develop one of the other forms of EB (simplex, junctional or Kindler syndrome). Dystrophic EB is so called because of the tendency to heal with scarring.
This information from Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) explains the causes, symptoms and treatments for Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB). EB is a group of inherited disorders in which the skin blisters extremely easily.
Epidermolysis bullosa (EB) is the term used to describe a number of rare genetic conditions which cause the skin to blister and shear in response to minimal friction and trauma. There are four broad categories of EB: EB simplex, junctional EB, dystrophic EB and Kindler syndrome. Within each of these categories there are several subtypes. One of the subtypes of EB simplex is the generalised severe type (previously known as Dowling Meara type).
