• Epithelia of all types are involved in the heritable forms of epidermolysis bullosa in a relatively nonselective fashion. The concept that the disease is restricted primarily to tissues lined by squamous epithelium is itself too restricted. This article considers the various types of epithelia with regard to their involvement in epidermolysis bullosa.
