Abstract Bullous pemphigoid is an acquired autoimmune subepidermal blistering disorder mostly seen in the elderly. Childhood bullous pemphigoid is very rare. For the first time we report a case of childhood bullous pemphigoid associated with infantile eczema. Two weeks after a routine vaccination, a 3.5-month-old boy with infantile eczema developed a generalized blistering disorder. Histopathology revealed a subepidermal blister. Direct immunofluorescence showed linear depositions of C3 along the basement membrane zone. Indirect immunofluorescence studies demonstrated the presence of circulating immunoglobulin G antibodies directed against the epidermal side of salt-split skin. Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay demonstrated serum level of anti-BP180 antibody elevated. The patient was successfully treated by high-dose i.v. immunoglobulin.
