This case study details the healing of a chronic wound (20 years' duration) in a patient with dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa (EB). Many different dressings and creams had been used, and on occasions the wound began to heal but never progressed to closure. A honey impregnated dressing was used and the wound healed in 15 weeks. A brief overview of the dystrophic form of EB is given and some evidence for the efficacy of honey is presented.
