A study of benign chronic bullous dermatosis of childhood and comparison with dermatitis herpetiformis and bullous pemphigoid occurring in childhood

Abstract: Summary Eighteen patients with benign chronic bullous dermatosis of childhood were studied and the findings compared with those of dermatitis herpetiformis (twenty‐two cases) and bullous pemphigoid (five cases) beginning in childhood. The patients with benign chronic bullous dermatosis of childhood had a moderately pruritic bullous eruption with maximal involvement of the pelvic and perioral regions which tended to occur at an earlier age than either dermatitis herpetiformis or bullous pemphigoid. In contrast … Show more

“…[21] Blister beetle dermatitis showed wide variation in the sex incidence with 75% male involvement. Similar views are shared by Padhi et al [22] Our view of CBDC being more common in males and having highest incidence in children younger than 6 years of age has been supported by Lear et al [23] and Marsden et al [24] who reported it as a self-limiting disorder which usually begins before the age of 6 years.…”

However, though the enteropathy in dermatitis herpetiformis closely resembles coeliac disease, in dermatitis herpetiformis gastrointestinal symptoms are extremely rare and usually mild [6]. Systemic effects of malabsorption have not yet been reported [7].…”
