Bart's syndrome is characterized by three clinical manifestations: epidermolysis bullosa, congenital absence of skin, and nail abnormalities. It is believed that congenital skin absence follows the patterns of Blaschko's lines. Treatment seeks to prevent secondary infection. Prognosis is favorable and depends upon the healing of lesions.
