Abstract

Dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa (DEB) is a rare and severe hereditary dermatosis, associated with collagen VII deficiency. A chronic inflammatory syndrome secondary to recurrent cutaneous infections may be responsible for amyloid deposition in this patient population, causing renal amyloidosis. Amyloidosis should be included in the differential diagnosis of DEB patients presenting with edema and proteinuria. Herein, we report a case of DEB complicated by squamous cell carcinoma and amyloid A amyloidosis of the kidneys confirmed with renal biopsy.
