Epidermolysis bullosa acquisita (EBA) is an acquired autoimmune bullous disease of skin and mucous membranes characterized by IgG autoantibodies to type VII collagen, major component of the anchoring fibrils in basement membrane zone (BMZ).(1) Type VII collagen is also expressed on esophageal mucosa.(2-3) Although EBA patients frequently develop oral mucosal lesions, esophageal involvement has rarely been described in EBA. This is probably because endoscopic examination and biopsy are not commonly performed in EBA patients without esophageal symptom or complication.(4) This article is protected by copyright.
