Vancomycin-induced linear IgA bullous dermatosis (LABD)-an atypical presentation

Clin Case Rep. 2019 Apr 22;7(5):1091-1093. doi: 10.1002/ccr3.2039. eCollection 2019 May.


We report an uncommon presentation of bullous dermatosis by linear IgA. There are few cases reported in the literature with this form of presentation starting with mucosal lesions and then evolving into a similar bullous pemphigoid pattern. In addition, we emphasize the importance of direct immunofluorescence for the definitive diagnosis.

Keywords: linear IgA bullous dermatosis; side effects of drugs; vancomycin; vesiculobullous disease.
