Two large families from the Faroe Islands presenting epidermolysis bullosa of the dystrophic type were subjected to extensive linkage analyses with 22 serological markers. No significant evidence in support of linkage with any of these loci was provided. It was found to be very unlikely that the gene or genes causing the present types of epidermolysis bullosa belong to the EBS1 locus known to be closely linked to the GPT locus.
