A 44 year-old male presented with hemorrhagic blisters in the oral mucosa. He developed these lesions two days before presentation, after eating hot and spicy food. The lesions were painful and increased in size over the next 24 hours. He did not have any history of bleeding diathesis or any blistering disorder. The skin and mucosal examination revealed blood-filled blisters that were 2 mm to just over 1 cm in diameter on the buccal mucosa and tongue [Figure 1a and b]. Hematological and coagulation tests were normal. The patient was reassured about his condition and asked to follow up after two weeks. All the lesions had resolved without any sequelae after two weeks.
