Severe infantile bullous pemphigoid treated with dapsone after bridging with systemic glucocorticoid

Research output: Contribution to journal/Conference contribution in journal/Contribution to newspaperJournal articleResearchpeer-review


We present a case of severe and treatment-refractory bullous pemphigoid in a 3-month-old child. After topical and systemic corticoid treatment proved inefficient, dapsone 0.75 mg/kg was added initially without success. Disease control was reached with dapsone 1.5 mg/kg in addition to both topical and systemic glucocorticoid treatment, leaving the child with several side effects of the glucocorticoid treatment.
