Bullous pemphigoid (BP) usually affects the elderly. The disease is uncommon in children and only a few cases have been described in infants < or =4 months of age. We describe two infants, ages 3 and 4 months, with BP. One infant had a recalcitrant course, and responded only to a combination of high-dose oral corticosteroids and dapsone.
