The case of a 9-year-old girl with a history of blistering lesions restricted to the right side of her body is described. Several family members are also affected in a symmetrical fashion. Histological examination showed acantholysis similar to a "dilapidated brick wall", corresponding to a rare presentation of mosaicism in Hailey-Hailey disease.
