Rare diseases of the skin and mucous membranes of genetic origin (MAGEC)

French national reference center for rare diseases of the skin and mucous membranes of genetic origin (MAGEC)

The MAGEC center at Necker hospital, coordinated by Professor Christine Bodemer, is an expert structure for genetic diseases with cutaneous expression and their chronic evolution throughout an individual’s life. It is particularly involved in the patient care of rare, severe and complex diseases such as ectodermal dysplasias, epidermolysis bullosa, ichthyosis, incontinentia pigmenti,  cutaneous and subcutaneous vascular malformations, Netherton syndrome, pigmentary abnormalities of the skin, etc.

The multidisciplinary MAGEC team (doctors, nurses, physiotherapist, social worker, psychologist) relies on a multidisciplinary platform of excellence in order to take care of the clinical, medico-social and therapeutic education of patients and their families . Professionals are trained for the specificity of these diseases, skin care and the pediatric population.

The Necker site provides hospitalization consultation (day or full). The expertise of team members associated with suitable equipment, such as therapeutic baths, allows better monitoring of patients. The center also conducts several clinical research programs, focused on the diagnosis and implementation of innovative treatments, in the best conditions of safety for patients. It also provides training for young caregivers (medical and paramedical) to sustain the acquired expertise.

The national reference center for genetic diseases with cutaneous expression (MAGEC) coordinated by Pr Christine Bodemer is divided into a multi-site activity: Necker, Cochin, St-Louis, Dijon, Angers and Tours.
This reference center is affiliated with the Fimarad rare diseases healthcare network and the ERN Skin European reference network (ERN) labeled for the treatment of all rare skin diseases. These two networks are coordinated by Pr Christine Bodemer, manager of the MAGEC multi-site center.

Therapeutic patient education (TPE)

The MAGEC Paris reference center offers patients and their families the opportunity to participate in a therapeutic education program.

Our team runs five programs dedicated to rare skin diseases :

TPE : what are we talking about ?

Therapeutic patient education (TPE) was defined in a WHO (World Health Organization) report in 1996: « It aims to help patients acquire or maintain the skills they need to manage their lives with a chronic disease. It is an integral and permanent part of patient management. This is to help them (and their families) understand their disease and treatment, work together and take responsibility for their own care, in order to help them maintain and improve their quality of life.  »

TPE is patient-centered, not disease-centered, and helps patients live better with their chronic disease on a daily basis.

A TPE session is different from a consultation because it is not simply a matter of delivering information to the patient but of involving him/her so that he/she can acquire knowledge and skills about his/her disease and its management in a personalized way. In this way, the patient will be able to maintain or improve his/her health and quality of life. Daily life is an essential dimension of TPE.

In concrete terms, what will MAGEC offer me in this program ?

Depending on your choice, you will be able to benefit from individual and/or group sessions with other families concerned by the same issues.

Our programs are built around a pathway with a majority of ten individual sessions. On average, each patient benefits from 3 to 4 sessions per year. The patient can progress at his or her own pace in the program, and leave or resume the program at any time.

How do I access or receive information about the programs ?

As a reference center, Necker’s MAGEC site participates in clinical and scientific research programs.

Necker’s MAGEC site has an important clinical research activity carried out in the dermatology department.  It coordinates and participates in clinical research projects in partnership with academic institutions as well as the pharmaceutical industry for innovative therapeutics and post-marketing registries.

With the help of the Imagine Institute, a clinical research team composed of an investigation project manager, a clinical research technician and a mobile clinical research nurse, intervene upstream to study the feasibility of the trial, with the trial investigator, set up and start up the studies, help select patients, increase the number of inclusions and manage the clinical trials on a daily basis.

Multidisciplinary consultation meetings (MCM) bring together health professionals from different disciplines to discuss patient cases in order to make a collegial decision on the best possible diagnostic and therapeutic care. Within this framework, the MAGEC reference center participates in the MCMs at the local, national and international level (within the framework of the ERN Skin).

At the national level, the MCMs are carried out using a highly secure tool that meets the regulatory requirements concerning personal health data. The MAGEC reference center participates in the MCM on genodermatosis, which is held every two months, as well as MCM on neurofibromatosis, angiomas, toxiderma and autoimmune bullous diseases.

For more information or to propose a case

The Magec reference center is linked to diagnostic laboratories for pre-natal, post-natal, pre-implantation diagnosis or high throughput sequencing.

Below are the lists of genes sequenced by pathology :

Hereditary bullous epidermolysis


Ichtyoses, palmoplantar keratodermas


Ectodermal dysplasias
