Call for Patients With Inherited Diseases of the Skin.—
We in San Francisco, Calif, as well as skin biologists in other cities are interested in finding the chromosomal location and eventually identifying the genes whose abnormalities underlie several inherited diseases of the skin. Initially, the group believes diseases for which this strategy offers the most likely insights include disorders of keratinization (eg, ichthyoses and Darier's and Hailey-Hailey diseases), forms of epidermolysis bullosa, forms of Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, psoriasis, and atopic dermatitis.
