PMID:  7042788     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A patient developed bullae in a donor site 3 weeks after a split-thickness skin graft was taken. No reference to blistering in the donor site of a recently taken split-thickness skin graft could be found in the surgical literature, and a computerized search of the world's medical literature revealed only a single report of a similar case. The mechanism of bulla formation has not been elucidated. We alert physicians to this phenomenon and urge that each case that is seen be studied in an orderly manner by histologic, electron microscopic, and immunofluorescent techniques.
