Chronic bullous disease of childhood with oral mucosal scarring.
- Chronic bullous disease of childhood (CBDC) is an acquired subepidermal bullous disease; oral involvement occurs with mouth ulcers and blisters in 57% of patients. The condition usually remits before puberty but persistence of the disease in adulthood is recognized. We report a case with severe oral scarring similar to that described in patients with adult linear IgA disease. To our knowledge this has not been previously described.
