ABSTRACT
We present a case of bullosis diabeticorum. It is a rare disorder, probably underdiagnosed, associated with long-term diabetes mellitus. Its etiology remains unclear. It is characterized by tense blisters, with serous content, recurrent and spontaneous on normal skin especially in the acral regions. Displays self-limiting course. No specific laboratory tests for diagnosis of this bullous disease exist. Clinical and conservative management to prevent secondary infection reduces morbidity in diabetic patients.
