Who are butterfly children?

Behind the romantic name lies a serious illness – epidermolysis bullosa. Children suffering from this ailment are called butterfly children, comparing the fragility of their skin to the fragility of a butterfly’s wing.

Epidermolysis bullosa (EB) is a genetic skin disorder in which there is a breakdown in genes that regulate proteins that hold the layers of skin, epidermis, and dermis together.

What is the International DEBRA Congress?

This groundbreaking event will bring together all the world’s knowledge of EB research, clinical treatment and the EB community.

This pooling of the latest knowledge from key stakeholders will not only provide guidance for EB professionals, but will also help develop strategies for the research, regulatory, financial and medical communities.

Which doctors help patients with EB?

Epidermolysis bullosa is a multidisciplinary disease that affects more than just the skin. This means that not only a dermatologist is involved in the treatment.

Here is a list of doctors that a patient with EB should contact for proper therapy and improve the quality of life: pediatrician, geneticist, gastroenterologist, ophthalmologist, cardiologist, nutritionist, otolaryngologist, dentist, surgeon, plastic surgeon, orthopedist, oncologist, psychologist, rehabilitologist.

Who should join?

1. Medical professionals.

Our goal is to bring together all the world’s knowledge of epidermolysis bullosa (EB) research and clinical management.

Participation in the Congress is a unique networking opportunity for professionals from all over the world. You will be able to share your experience and get the latest information in the field of EB. And your knowledge will help patients living with EB around the world get advice on care and treatment

2. Patients

Our mission is to improve the lives of people living with epidermolysis bullosa (EB).

DEBRA International Congress 2021 will bring together experts in EB research, clinical treatment and the EB community.

Thus, all patients will have access to information about the latest research and international experience in clinical treatment.
