Introduction: Bullous systemic lupus erythematosus (BSLE) is a rare blistering disorder seen in the background of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). It can either be a presenting feature or manifest later in an established case of SLE often accompanied by lupus nephritis. Case Report: We report a case of a 12-year-old girl in whom the presenting feature of SLE was BSLE, along with hemolytic anemia. Discussion: Bullous SLE should be considered in the differential diagnosis in children presenting with vesiculobullous lesions even in the absence of established SLE
