PMID:  786178     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We have been three cases of a bullous variant of transient acantholytic dermatosis. Skin biopsy specimens showed histopathologic changes identical to pemphigus foliaceus, but immunofluorescent studies showed no tissue-fixed or circulating antibodies to intercellular antigens. The bullous eruption lasted a few weeks to several months and healed without scarring or recurrence. The lesions healed with topical and/or systemic corticosteroid therapy.
