Abstract

The presence of various cutaneous disorders may reflect the occult internal malignancy. Bullous pemphigoid (BP), a common autoimmune skin disease, is characterized by the presence of subepidermal blisters. The association of bullous pemphigoid with internal malignant neoplasm has occasionally been reported. However, the relationship of bullous pemphigoid and malignancy is still controversial; the evidence for this association is increasing. Here, we report a rare case of a bullous pemphigoid associated with prostate adenocarcinoma.
