A lot of diseases occur on the skin of elderly persons. We report four elderly cases of bullous dermatosis that did not meet various differential diagnoses. Japanese, heart failure, atrophic skin and leg edema probably due to aging, as well as flaccid or tense bullae localized in legs were the common factors to our patients. Such conditions may be increased in coming aging society. Accordingly, it is worth regarding such symptom as the new clinical entity, which may comfort patients with similar condition and attract further attention.
