We report two patients who had a bullous eruption limited to the lower extremities when first seen by us. Clinically the eruption resembled limited bullous pemphigoid. In both patients the onset of the eruption was associated with ibuprofen therapy, and lesions promptly resolved after discontinuing the ibuprofen. This type of presentation has not been reported previously as an adverse effect of ibuprofen. Bullous reactions to nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agents are briefly reviewed.
