We report a 55-year-old man with severe inflammatory epidermolysis bullosa acquisita. The skin lesions did not respond to various immunosuppressive treatments. The combined administration of prednisone, azathioprine, dapsone and colchicine resulted only in a transient and incomplete resolution of the lesions. The bullae and increased skin fragility were successfully controlled by the addition of high-dose intravenous immunoglobulin therapy.
