Differential diagnosis is one of the basic pieces of knowledge of every physician, including a dermatologist. Failure in this extraordinarily important area leads to prolongation of problems in an affected patient, their social isolation, higher expenses, or, unfortunately, also to fatal outcomes. It is true that some dermatoses, especially those with vesicular or bullous manifestations, may lead also an experienced dermatologist to erroneous conclusions, which complicates the course of disease and causes even more severe secondary diseases - as shown in the presented case reports. Impetigo and impetiginisation of other dermatoses may be hard to diagnose and treat, especially when the course is bizarre and complicated. This seemingly banal disease must not be underestimated and we must master the bottlenecks of differential diagnostics.
