Abstract

Hailey-Hailey disease is a rare autosomal dominant disorder characterized by recurrent blisters especially on the intertriginous areas such as groin, axillae, and neck. The course of disease is characterized by spontaneous exacerbation and remission. The usual modes of therapy include topical and systemic glucocorticoids, antibiotics, surgical skin grafts, laser treatment, and conservative managements. We report a case of Hailey-Hailey disease treated with oral cyclosporine.
