Linear IgA bullous dermatosis (LABD) is an acquired autoimmune subepidermal blistering disorder in which linear deposits of IgA are found along the basement membrane. Idiopathic, systemic disorder-related, and drug-induced forms of LABD have been described. Drug-induced LABD occurs in association with drug administration and resolves when the offending agent is discontinued. Other forms of LABD assume a more chronic course. The nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs piroxicam and diclofenac have been previously reported to induce LABD. To our knowledge, this article describes the first documented case of LABD associated with naproxen administration, which resolved after discontinuation of the drug.
