Angina bullosa hemorrhagica (ABH) is a term used to describe acute, subepithelial oral mucosal blisters filled with blood without any systemic disorder or hemostatic defect. The diagnosis of ABH is largely clinical, and includes elimination of other diseases at histology. We present a 24-year-old patient suffering from ABH with some clinical peculiarities. Recognition of ABH is of great importance to dermatologists, to avoid misdiagnosis.
