Abstract
Linear immunoglobulin A bullous dermatosis (LABD) is an immune-mediated subepidermal blistering disease that can be triggered by drug exposures, most notably, vancomycin. The authors report of a case of a 72-year-old man who developed LABD after a course of moxifl oxacin. To the authors’ knowledge, there is no other case of LABD caused by moxifl oxacin in the medical literature.
