Case-based review, 13 - 16Tag this article
Immunobullous diseases are very uncommon in children. Epidermolysis bullosa acquisita are rarely seen in children. Epidermolysis bullosa acquisita is an acquired subepidermal blistering disease with variable clinical, pathological, immunological features. We are reporting a child with epidermolysis bullosa acquisita with overlapping clinical and immunological features of both bullous pemphigoid and chronic bullous disease of childhood with the poor therapeutic outcome.
KEY WORDS: epidermolysis bullosa acquisita; mixed immunobullous dermatosis.
