A 22-month-old male patient had extensive itchy and firm bullous lesions on his entire body, including his scalp. First of all, infectious bullous diseases were considered, but infectious diseases were ruled out with tests. Skin biopsy was examined with immunofluorescence tests for a definitive diagnosis. The patient was diagnosed with linear IgA bullous dermatosis disease, and treatment was started. Follow-up was continued due to insufficient response to treatment. In pediatric patients, it is important to distinguish Linear IgA Bullous Dermatosis from other autoimmune bullous diseases and bullous infectious diseases. With the right treatment, the quality of life of the patient can be improved in the early period. In this case, we examined the way the patient was diagnosed with Linear IgA Bullous Dermatosis and reached the right treatment.
