Abstract:  Wells’ syndrome is a rare disease that is even more uncommon in childhood. This case report illustrates the potential devastating extent of the disease and highlights the unusual presentation of bullae in a child. It is imperative to consider Wells’ syndrome in patients with presumed cellulitis and eosinophilia who fail to respond to antibiotics.
