Only 10 cases of radiation-induced localized bullous pemphigoid have been reported.1,2 We describe a patient who developed bullous pemphigoid following radiation treatments for locally recurrent breast carcinoma. We believe this case helps to establish radiation-induced localized bullous pemphigoid as an unusual but highly treatable sequela of radiation treatments for locally recurrent breast carcinoma.
