Linear IgA bullous dermatosis is a rare autoimmune blistering disease that occurs in both children and adults. Strings of pearls, crowns of jewels, rosettes and urticarial plaques can occur on the whole integument with emphasis on the face (particularly perioral area) and genitalia. Pruritus is common and may be severe. The presence of IgA deposits along the basement membrane can usually be identified using direct immunofluorescence (DIF) microscopy. The histological and clinical features of this disorder may mimic those of dermatitis herpetiformis.
