Anti-laminin γ1-pemphigoid (formerly known as anti-p200 pemphigoid) is a rare subepidermal autoimmunobullous disorder first described by Zillikens et al. in 1996 (1,2). Clinically, it mimics bullous pemphigoid, linear IgA dermatosis, dermatitis herpetiformis, pompholyx or the inflammatory variant of epidermolysis bullosa acquisita, respectively (1,3). The laminin γ1-chain has been identified as the major targeting antigen (1,4,5). Histologically, a subepidermal split is seen accompanied by neutrophils and eosinophils as well as linear deposits of IgG and/or C3 along the dermoepidermal junction in direct immunofluorescence microscopy (1)...

UNLABELLED: Linear IgA bullous dermatosis (LABD) is a rare autoimmune blistering disease. LABD is considered mostly idiopathic, butsome cases have been reported to be drug-induced, mainly associated with vancomycin (VCM).We present two cases of LABD possibly associated with VCM used for cardiac surgery prophylaxis; in the presented cases, the eruptions occurred only after VCM withdrawal, therefore leaving a question about the relationship between VCM and LABD in these cases.We reviewed previous reports of VCM-induced LABD and analyzed the following parameters: gender, age, recent medical history, concurrent medication, latency period, progression after withdrawal, time to resolution, treatment, and rechallenge...

BACKGROUND: Vancomycin is a broad-spectrum antibiotic whose use may be limited by adverse drug reactions (ADRs). Although vancomycin toxic effects are known, there are limited data on vancomycin hypersensitivity reactions (HSRs). OBJECTIVE: To understand the most commonly reported vancomycin HSRs through systematic case review. METHODS: We performed a literature search for English-language case reports and series from 1982 through 2015 (last search July 31, 2015) on Ovid MEDLINE and PubMed...

We aimed to better understand the pathogenesis, clinical features, prognosis, and treatment of neonatal autoimmune blistering diseases (AIBDs). We searched Medline, Embase, PubMed, Latin American and Caribbean Health Sciences Literature, and reference lists of identified articles. Inclusion criteria were articles published from 1946 to December 2014 in any language. Exclusion criteria were age greater than 4 weeks and no confirmed AIBD diagnosis. We identified 51 cases of neonatal AIBDs: 34 cases of pemphigus (31 pemphigus vulgaris [PV], 3 pemphigus foliaceus [PF]) and 17 cases of pemphigoid diseases (9 bullous pemphigoid [BP], 5 linear immunoglobulin A bullous dermatosis [LABD], 1 BP and LABD, 1 epidermolysis bullosa acquisita, 1 bullous systemic lupus erythematosus)...

Autoimmune bullous diseases (AIBDs)-associated interstitial lung disease (ILD) is extremely rare. Pemphigus vulgaris (PV) is an intraepidermal autoimmune blistering disease caused by circulating autoantibodies against desmoglein. To date, PV-associated ILD has rarely been reported in English literature. We report a rare association of PV and ILD. A 53-year-old Chinese female with PV for 8 months developed ILD after a relapse of PV for 2 months due to discontinuation of oral prednisone by herself. She was successfully treated by systemic methylprednisolone...

A young woman presented with generalised tense blisters. There had been no previous drug exposure and she had no clinical signs of autoimmune disease or evidence of sepsis. Given the abrupt onset and clinical scenario, a skin punch biopsy was performed and a tentative diagnosis of linear IgA bullous dermatosis (LABD) was made. Dapsone, an immunomodulatory sulfone that has been supported for use in LABD by case reports and clinical observation, was administered with an adjunctive oral corticosteroid to accelerate resolution...

BACKGROUND: The subepidermal autoimmune bullous diseases are a subset of immunobullous diseases encountered less frequently in the Indian population. There is a paucity of data on the prevalence, demographic and clinicopathological spectrum of various subepidermal autoimmune bullous diseases from India. AIM: To determine the demographic and clinicopathological profile of subepidermal autoimmune bullous diseases in Indian patients, presenting to the Immunobullous Disease Clinic of Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, Chandigarh...

BACKGROUND: Autoimmune bullous diseases (ABDs) represent a group of rare, acquired disorders characterized by overlapping features with involvement of the skin and mucous membranes, resistance to treatment, and potential lethality that comprise pemphigus, bullous pemphigoid (BP), epidermolysis bullosa, dermatitis herpetiformis, and linear immunoglobulin A bullous dermatosis. AIM: The main aim of this study was to identify the epidemiologic characteristics and clinical courses of these common diseases in Hamadan, Iran...

Linear immunoglobulin A bullous dermatosis is a rare autoimmune mucocutaneous disorder caused by immunoglobulin A autoantibodies produced against several different antigens in the basement membrane zone. Clinically, it is characterized by tense vesicles or bullae, which on histopathological exam demonstrate subepidermal blister with a predominantly neutrophilic infiltrate. A smooth, linear pattern of immunoglobulin A deposition in the basement membrane zone on direct immunofluorescence is considered the gold standard for establishing a diagnosis...

Linear immunoglobulin A (IgA) bullous dermatosis (LABD) is an autoimmune mucocutaneous disease characterized by subepidermal blistering induced by IgA autoantibodies against several autoantigens in the basal membranous zone of the skin and mucosal tissue. Although diaminodiphenyl sulfone (DDS), also known as dapsone, is generally recognized as the first-line therapy for LABD, DDS can induce several severe side effects. We present a Japanese case of LABD with DDS-induced hemolytic anemia and alopecia. In the present case, the DDS-induced hemolytic anemia and hair loss made the DDS monotherapy difficult...

Linear immunoglobulin A bullous dermatosis is a rare entity with frequent spontaneous resolution. It usually presents in children with average age of 4.5 years. Its incidence is about 0.5-2.3 cases/million individuals/year. It is, after dermatitis herpetiformis, the most frequent paediatric blister disorder. It usually appears in bouts with acute development of vesicles in strings of pearls; affecting the perioral area and genitalia. Diagnosis is based on the clinical signs and symptoms and biopsy of the skin with subepidermal blister and a linear band of immunoglobulin A in the direct immunofluorescence...

Linear immunoglobulin A (IgA) dermatosis (LAD) is a rare autoimmune disorder that presents as a vesiculo-bullous lesion with cutaneous manifestations, but rare oral mucosal involvement. Here we discuss a case of a vesiculobullous lesion with severe oral and ocular mucosal involvement mimicking pemphigoid with histopathological evidence of subepithelial blisters. Direct immunofluorescence (DIF) confirmed the lesion as LAD of adult variant, although with atypical clinical features.

Linear IgA bullous disease (LABD) is a rare vesiculobullous autoimmune skin disorder whose etiology and pathogenesis are not completely understood. Its occurrence has been related to malignancies, inflammatory diseases and several drugs. This report describes a 49-year-old Caucasian male with a 14-year history of ulcerative colitis who received infliximab to treat the refractory course of his bowel disease. During induction therapy with infliximab, he developed LABD. Treatment with infliximab was discontinued, and the skin lesions were successfully treated with oral steroids and dapsone...

Diseases associated with immunoglobulin A (IgA) antibody include linear IgA dermatosis, IgA nephropathy, Celiac disease, Henoch-Schönlein purpura, etc. Although usually idiopathic, IgA antibody is occasionally induced by drugs (e.g., vancomycin, carbamazepine, ceftriaxone, and cyclosporine), malignancies, infections, and other causes. So far, only a few cases of IgA bullous dermatosis coexisting with IgA nephropathy have been reported. A 64-year-old female receiving intravenous ceftriaxone and metronidazole for liver abscess had purpuric macules and papules on her extremities...

BACKGROUND: Since the original description by Zone et al in 1994, the disease entity and target antigens in linear IgA/IgG bullous dermatosis (LAGBD) have not been clarified in 20 years. OBJECTIVES: To determine autoantibodies and autoantigens in a new LAGBD case which showed atypical clinical and histopathological findings without apparent mucosal involvement. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We performed various indirect immunofluorescence and immunoblotting studies...
