Resumen

The differential diagnosis of vesiculobullous lesions can be intimidating to the primary care provider. While some entities such as bullous impetigo may easily be diagnosed clinically if the patient’s demographics as well as the lesion morphology and distribution present classically, atypical presentations may require additional laboratory studies for confirmation. We describe a case of bullous impetigo with characteristics that clinically mimicked two rare immunobullous dermatoses. Although extensive diagnostic testing was performed, we recommend an approach for primary care providers to initiate empiric treatment while maintaining awareness of less common immunobullous entities.
