• We have seen three cases of a bullous variant of transient acantholytic dermatosis. Skin biopsy specimens showed histopathologic changes identical to pemphigus foliaceus, but immunofluorescent studies showed no tissuefixed or circulating antibodies to intercellular antigens. The bullous eruption lasted a few weeks to several months and healed without scarring or recurrence. The lesions healed with topical and/or systemic corticosteriod therapy.
