Abstract

Bullous pemphigoid (BP) is a chronic autoimmune subepidermal blistering disease that usually occurs in the elderly. Two types of clinical variants exist. The generalized form typically involves the lower abdomen, groin, thighs and inner arms. The localized forms of BP include (1) mucous membrane pemphigoid or cicatrical pemphigoid, (2) localized scarring pemphigoid or Brunsting-Perry pemphigoid, and (3) localized nonscarring pemphigoid. We report here on a case of localized nonscarring pemphigoid on the face of a 71-years-old man.
