Epidermolysis bullosa acquisita is a chronic subepidermal blistering disease associated with autoimmunity to type-VII collagen within anchoring fibrils located at the dermo-epidermal junction. This entity is rarely reported from India. It can have a variety of presentations. Its occurrence with retroviral disease has rarely been reported.
