Abstract

SILVEIRA, Kleber de Sousa et al. Case for Diagnosis. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2009, vol.84, n.6, pp. 680-681. ISSN 0365-0596.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962009000600018.

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.

Keywords : Acantholysis; Mosaicism; Familial benign pemphigus.
