In this case report we present a young patient with localised childhood vulvar pemphigoid. It is a rare variant of bullous pemphigoid with mostly a favourable prognosis and prompt response to potent topical corticosteroids. She presented with relapsing vulvar pain and lesions. Our case enlightens the recognition of this unusual subtype and the importance of performing a cutaneous biopsy.
