Upper airway obstruction in a patient with epidermolysis bullosa acquisita
Epidermolysis bullosa acquisita (EBA) is a rare, acquired autoimmune bullous disease characterized by the development of tense bullae spontaneously or due to minor trauma to the skin and mucosal surfaces. Mucosal involvement has been reported in the oral cavity, nasal cavity, eyes, pharynx, larynx, and esophagus. Laryngeal involvement in EBA has been reported infrequently in the literature. We report a case of such involvement in a patient with EBA and marked supraglottic stenosis.
