Abstract

We report a woman with recessive dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa (RDEB) in whom there was prolonged sepsis and death at age 22 years. Autopsy revealed multiple epidermolytic skin lesions with chronic ulceration, mesangioproliferative glomerulonephritis and multifocal necrotizing leucoencephalopathy (MNL) of the pons. The latter two conditions may have been mediated by sepsis-associated cytokines. Although mesangioproliferative glomerulonephritis has previously been described in association with RDEB, to our knowledge this is the first report of MNL in a patient with RDEB.
