Abstract Linear IgA bullous dermatosis of childhood is the most common immunobullous disorder of childhood. First-line treatment includes dapsone or sulfapyridine. We report a child with linear IgA dermatosis who was treated successfully with colchicine after developing hemolytic anemia from dapsone. We recommend colchicine as an alternative therapy for linear IgA dermatosis of childhood in patients in whom first-line treatment is contraindicated or who fail first-line treatment or develop side effects from it.
