Bullous systemic lupus erythematosus. Report of a case with lupus erythematosus cells in the dermis
A 20-year-old black patient with bullous systemic lupus erythematosus developed papular and vesicular lesions on the extensor surfaces of the extremities. Histologically, subepidermal blisters and papillary neutrophilic abscesses with a striking number of lupus erythematosus cells were observed. No circulating anti-basal-membrane-zone antibodies were found. By Western immunoblotting, the patient's serum showed no reactivity against epidermal or dermal extracts.
