Kidney transplant recipients frequently suffer from skin infections and malignancies. New dermatosis can appear after transplantation. Although children are maintained on varying degrees of chronic immunosuppression, there is still a possibility of autoimmune blistering skin conditions, which can pose a diagnostic challenge in terms of clinical presentation. Histopathology of skin lesions is very important which helps in correct diagnosis and prompt treatment. We report an extremely rare case of linear IgA dermatosis in a child who was postrenal transplant and treated successfully with dapsone and steroids.
