Abstract Background: Epidermolysis bullosa is an uncommon disease with a wide spectrum of severity. Here we report a patient presenting with unusual symptoms. Case Report: The patient is a 22 years old female with progressive dysphasia and odynophagia to solids and liquids and a history of spontaneously remitting blisters caused after mild trauma from her childhood till she was 13 years old. Subepidermal blisters were diagnosed as junctional type of epidermolysis bullosa by histopathology. Conclusion: Physicians should have a high index of suspicion regarding epidermolysis bullosa in patients presenting with dysphagia and cutaneous blisters.. Keywords: Junctional epidermolysis bullosa, Gastrointestinal symptoms, Subepidermal.
