Abstract

A 60-year-old man presented with a 3-week history of pruritic bullae and erosions located within an acupuncture site on the right lower leg. Ten days prior to the development of these bullae, he had been treated with acupuncture to the right calf due to Achilles tendonitis which had developed 1 year earlier. The diagnosis of bullous pemphigoid was confirmed by histologic findings and salt-split direct immunofluorescence study performed on the perilesional skin. To our knowledge, this is the first case of localized bullous pemphigoid following acupuncture.
