PMID:  7659647     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A newborn boy had junctional epidermolysis bullosa, duodenal obstruction, and gastric infarction, a newly described combination that extends the spectrum of gastrointestinal findings associated with junctional epidermolysis bullosa. The infant underwent feeding jejunostomy, but died 16 days after birth. This report emphasizes the need for gastrointestinal assessment in any neonate suspected of having epidermolysis bullosa, especially if the pregnancy was complicated by polyhydramnios.
