Özet

Skin blistering and fragility are hallmarks of the rare hereditary disease called Epidemolysis Bullosa, affecting mainly the skin but also all mucocutaneous layers and sometimes the aero-digestive tract. Orofacial clefts are among the most common structural birth defects in humans, seen about 2 cases per 1000 births. This case report illustrates the closure of cleft lip and cleft palate in 13 month female with epidermolysis bullosa.
