Abstract:  Eosinophilic cellulitis, or Wells syndrome, is a rare but well-described condition in which bullous lesions are uncommon, especially in childhood. We report a case of bullous eosinophilic cellulitis recalcitrant to steroid therapy in a 9-year-old boy who was successfully treated with oral dapsone.
