Bullous pemphigoid in children is extremely infrequent, with no prevalence or incidence data in medical literature. Most of them predominate in elderly persons, resulting fundamental to consider that in medicine everything could be possible, and this disease could occur in children, so we must pay special attention to its clinical manifestations, to take the appropriate exams and in this way perform an effective treatment at the precise moment. Following, we present a clinical case of bullous pemphigoid that occurred in a pediatric patient attended at our university hospital.
