Dermatology consultation was sought by a 69-year-old man for complaints of recent-onset erythematous, itchy, fluid-filled lesions that appeared either spontaneously or were incited by minor trauma and tended to rupture within 4–5 days. On examination, there were few (<10 in number) haemorrhagic blisters of variable sizes (maximum up to 2 cm diameter) distributed on the chest, abdomen and upper extremities (figure 1A and B). The bullae had settled down or eroded and had healed with hypopigmentation at few places. No mucosal involvement was seen. His nails were normal.
