A 39-year-old woman had a three-year history of recurrent bullous eruption localized to her left cheeck. The diagnosis of epidermolysis bullosa acquisita was confirmed by means of direct immunofluorescence and direct immunoelectron microscopic studies performed on the perilesional salt-split skin. Topical corticosteroid treatment reduced pruritus and bullae formation. This case of localized epidermolysis bullosa acquisita on the face is reminiscent of Brunsting-Perry cicatricial pemphigoid. We also review the previously reported cases of localized epidermolysis bullosa acquisita.
