Linear IgA bullous dermatosis (LAD) is an autoimmune, chronic bullous disease affecting primarily young children and adults. Studies on LAD are relatively sparse and from Scandinavia we could only find a few case reports. Therefore we decided to conduct a retrospective investigation of patients seen at our department since 1972. A total of 23 patients were identified; 7 children (F:M ratio 0.75) and 16 adults (F:M ratio 0.78). Mean age at disease onset in the two age groups were 2.7 and 56.8 years. Estimated incidence rate in our region: 0.67 per million per year. The most commonly used treatment modalities were corticosteroids, dapsone and sulphapyridine.
