Learn About Epidermolysis Bullosa Acquisita

What is the definition of Epidermolysis Bullosa Acquisita?
Epidermolysis bullosa acquisita (EBA) is a rare autoimmune disorder that causes the skin to blister in response to minor injury. Common areas of blistering include the hands, feet, knees, elbows, and buttocks. It can also affect the mouth, nose, and eyes. Some affected people have other health problems such as Crohn's disease, systemic lupus erythematosus, amyloidosis, or multiple myeloma. EBA is not inherited and usually occurs in adulthood. Immunosuppressive drugs may be used to reduce the body's autoimmune response.
