Epidermolysis bullosa

Anja Diem, MD together with a butterfly child

Congenital, severe and no cure as yet

Epidermolysis bullosa (EB) is a severe congenital skin disorder that currently cannot be cured. Those affected by this condition, which has been classified as rare, are often referred to as "butterfly children" because their skin is as fragile as a butterfly's wings.

Although a great deal of promising research progress has been made, no cure for EB has yet been found. For this reason, competent medical care and empathetic advice for those affected by EB is particularly important.

In accordance with the motto "Research is the Key", various research activities are currently underway in Austria and in other countries as well, all with the aim of developing therapies and finding a cure for EB.

With your help, we can give hope and confidence to those affected by EB.

Please give us your support!
