Abstract

We report 2 patients with documented chronic hepatitis C infection and epidermolysis bullosa acquisita (EBA). Both patients clinically represent classic EBA, exhibiting skin fragility and blistering occurring both spontaneously and secondary to trauma, which heal with milia and scar formation. EBA often is a disease of altered immune status and debility. Further work is necessary to show whether hepatitis C plays a causative role in EBA in these 2 patients and in general. © 2006 American Academy of Dermatology, Inc.
