Abstract: Linear immunoglobulin A bullous dermatosis (LABD) is an autoimmune blistering disease that most commonly presents in preschool-aged children. There have been few neonatal reports, all of which had life-threatening aerodigestive complications requiring mechanical intervention and systemic therapy. We present a case of LABD in a neonate who had an uncomplicated course and was treated conservatively with only low-potency topical corticosteroids and wound care before resolution of his skin lesions.
