The Miscellaneous Blistering Disorders
Historically, the classification of the blistering disorders has been arbitrarily assigned by common clinical features (ie, vesicle, bullae), etiologic factors (ie, infectious, immunologic), or histologic parameters (ie, intraepidermal and subepidermal). There are distinct advantages to each of these classification systems, yet there remain a small number of either common conditions that rarely manifests as a blistering disorder or uncommon conditions that routinely blister, defying conventional classification. Such misfits comprise a miscellaneous group of blistering conditions that merit special consideration.
