Author and Disclosure Information

Several diseases may be confused with scabies. Vesicular and bullous eruptions have been reported in patients with several bullous conditions.

We report the case of a 35-year-old man who developed a vesicular eruption in the course of a scabies outbreak, and we discuss the differential diagnosis of this atypical presentation.
