Epidermolysis Bullosa Acquisita With Electron Microscopical Studies

Arch Dermatol. 1975;111(12):1658. doi:10.1001/archderm.1975.01630240114021

To the Editor.—  With interest, I read the article by Gibbs and Minus.1 To their knowledge, it was the first report of electron microscopical studies of epidermolysis bullosa acquisita. I would like to draw attention to a case report, published by me in Dermatologica in 1974,2 of a 76-year-old woman with epidermolysis bullosa acquisita. The electron microscopical studies in this case were similar to those in the case reported by Gibbs and Minus. Two photomicrographs showed a bulla situated in the stratum papillare cutis; fragments of collagen fibers were present in the roof of the bulla, and the basal lamina composing the roof showed destruction in some places.
