Abstract

ALMEIDA, Nadia Aparecida Pereira de; SERAFINI, Flavia; MARCHIORI, Janaine  and  MORO, Julie Gomes Del. Do you know this syndrome?. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2010, vol.85, n.1, pp. 119-121. ISSN 0365-0596.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962010000100023.

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.

Keywords : Congenital abnormalities; Epidermolysis bullosa; Genetics.
