• A patient with pretibial epidermolysis bullosa was successfully treated with a skin graft. Ultrastructural examination revealed a decreased number of and rudimentary anchoring fibrils (AFs) in the pretibial area in contrast to normal AFs in the grafted skin obtained from a nonpredilection site. Our results indicate the importance of AFs in the pathogenesis of pretibial epidermolysis bullosa.
