epidermolysis

 [ep″ĭ-der-mol´ĭ-sis]
a loosened state of the epidermis with formation of blebs and bullae either spontaneously or at the site of trauma.
epidermolysis bullo´sa a variety with development of bullae and vesicles, often at the site of trauma; in the hereditary forms, there may be severe scarring after healing, or extensive denuded areas after rupture of the lesions.

ep·i·der·mol·y·sis

(ep'i-dĕr-mol'i-sis), Avoid the mispronunciation epidermoly'sis.

epidermolysis bullosa
a hereditary disease of humans, Collie dogs, Shetland sheepdogs, Suffolk, South Dorset Down and Scottish blackface sheep, and Simmental and Brangus calves. Characterized by epidermal bullae, particularly on areas of pressure or trauma and in sheep in the mouth and on woolless skin. There may be shedding of hooves and horns. Called also red foot disease.
congenital bovine epidermolysis
ulcers on lips, gums, tongue, muzzle and limb extremities at birth; skin lesions may be local alopecia without ulceration; resembles epidermolysus bullosa simplex in humans; an autosomal dominant recorded in Simmentals.
