Bullous pemphigoid is rare in children and even rarer in infants. By presenting two cases of bullous pemphigoid related by their temporal proximity with a previous episode of vaccination, it will be carefully discussed if a relationship is or is not possible. Our final conclusion is that the association is mostly a myth rather than a reality and bullous pemphigoid is not a contraindication to continue with the normal vaccination schedule of infants.

Abstract

Bullous pemphigoid is rare in children and even rarer in infants. By presenting two cases of bullous pemphigoid related by their temporal proximity with a previous episode of vaccination, it will be carefully discussed if a relationship is or is not possible. Our final conclusion is that the association is mostly a myth rather than a reality and bullous pemphigoid is not a contraindication to continue with the normal vaccination schedule of infants. It is important to know about this clinical entity in order to perform adequate treatment that avoids any worsening or future relapse of this disease.
