Epidermolysis bullosa acquisita (EBA) is a chronic autoimmune bullous disease characterized by the presence of IgG and IgM antibodies at the level of basement membrane. It is rare in humans and animals with an incidence ranging from 0.2 to 0.5 new cases per million and per year. This dermatological condition is a severe autoimmune disease. Scarring of the extensor surfaces of the extremities, hands and feet are typical; milia occur frequently; and nails often become thick and dystrophic or are lost. The disorder affects both sexes equally and occurs in all racial and ethnic groups.
