Abstract

KANAGUSUKO, Telma; AOKI, Valéria; TEBCHERANI, Antonio José  and  SANCHEZ, Ana Paula Galli. Linear IgA dermatosis induced by pregnancy. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2008, vol.83, n.1, pp. 49-52. ISSN 1806-4841.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962008000100007.

Linear IgA disease is a rare autoimmune subepidermal bullous disorder characterized by linear IgA deposits at the epidermal basement membrane zone. According to the literature, in patients who have linear IgA disease and become pregnant, the disease tends to improve. We report a case of linear IgA disease induced by pregnancy, successfully treated with dapsone and prednisone with no adverse effects observed in the patient and her newborns.

Keywords : Basement membrane; Dapsone; Pregnancy; Skin diseases, vesiculobullous.
