Abstract

Autoimmune blistering disorders comprise a series of conditions in which autoantibodies target components of the skin and mucous membranes, leading to blister and bullae formation. Most conditions in the spectrum of autoimmune blistering disorders are uncommonly seen in the pediatric population, even the most common ones, such as chronic bullous disease of childhood and dermatitis herpetiformis; however, they often come into the differential diagnosis of other more common pediatric entities. In addition, prompt recognition and treatment avoids unnecessary morbidity and improves ultimate outcome.
