Abstract

A 52-year-old man had a twenty-five year history of recurrent bullous eruption that was localized to both cheeks. The diagnosis of epidermolysis bullosa acquisita was confirmed by means of direct immunofluorescence and salt-split direct immunofluorescence studies that were performed on the perilesional skin. The patient has been in partial remission state with the treatment of low dose dapsone (12.5 ∼ 25 mg) and topical tacrolimus. Herein, we report on a case of EBA localized to the face, and it showed a favorable response to treatment with low-dose dapsone and topical tacrolimus.
