A female full-term neonate was born to healthy parents after an uneventful pregnancy. At birth, flaccid bullae and erosions were noted in a symmetric configuration along the radial aspects of both wrists (Figure 1). Some erosions showed a denuded base indicating recently ruptured bullae, and beginning epithelialization was observed in others (Figure 2).
