Abstract

Wells’ syndrome is a rare inflammatory skin condition of unknown etiology,
characterized by recurrent erythematous urticarial plaques and dermal eosinophilic
infiltration. We present two cases of bullous Wells’ syndrome in pediatric patients.
This condition, especially the bullous type, is rarely seen in children and is often
mistaken with cellulitis.
