We report a female infant with recurrent biopsy-proven vesicobullous incontinentia pigmenti occurring after her 12-month and 18-month immunizations. To our knowledge, incontinentia pigmenti vesicobullous recurrence following immunizations has not been reported. We propose that vaccinations may serve as triggers for incontinentia pigmenti reactivation.
