The Geneskin website


Welcome to this online database dedicated to rare genetic diseases of the skin.

Our mission is to disseminate knowledge about these disorders and improve their diagnosis, treatment, and care.


This website provides a general area for patients, their relatives and the general public to learn about these diseases. We also offer a more specific area, 'Information for Professionals', with additional details for medical practitioners.


By providing information, we strive to support individuals affected by genodermatoses and the healthcare professionals who care for them.
