REVIEW
Angeliki Liakopoulou, Efstathios Rallis
Bullous lichen planus is a rare variant of lichen planus. It is characterized by vesicles or bullae, which usually develop in the context of pre-existing LP lesions. It is often misdiagnosed and should be differentiated from other subepidermal bullous diseases especially lichen planus pemphigoides. The diagnosis is based on clinical suspicion and is confirmed by histopathology and immunofluoresence. The clinical features of bullous lichen planus include typical lichen planus lesions, accompanied by the formation of bullae on the affected or perilesional skin...

BACKGROUND: Psoriasis, atopic dermatitis or eczema (AD-E), pemphigus, bullous pemphigoid (BP), and hidradenitis are chronic inflammatory skin disorders associated with systemic immune activation, considerable symptom burden, stigma, functional disturbances, and mental health symptoms. All of these might increase cardiovascular risk. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to determine whether these inflammatory skin diseases are associated with increased cardiovascular/cerebrovascular risk and/or disease...

Cicatricial Pemphigoid is a subepithelial bullous dermatosis which essentially involves the mucous membranes with cicatricial evolution We report the case of a 66-year old patient hospitalized with erosive gingivitis associated with dysphagia, dyspnea and blurred vision. Dermatologic examination showed erosive lesions involving the palate and the pharynx. Ophthalmologic examination showed symblepharons, ectropion and bilateral cataract. Gingival biopsy revealed a necrotic detachment of the buccal epithelium...

Bullous pemphigoid is the most common autoimmune bullous disease, treated with low dosage local or systemic corticosteroids. This is a case report of a 65 years-old female patient with a month long history of a bullous disease before admission to the dermatology department with a generalized bullous rash. Clinical examination and histopathology revealed bullous pemphigoid. She was treated according to the established protocol with systemic corticosteroids. The amount of prednisone was raised to 100mg per day for 8 weeks without any noticeable improvement, instead there was a worsening of her symptoms...

Bullous pemphigoid (BP) is an autoimmune blistering skin disorder. Recently, BP induced by dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4) inhibitors has been a concern. Although DPP-4 inhibitors are commonly used in the Asian population due to their safety and efficacy, BP associated with DPP-4 inhibitors is sometimes seen in clinical settings. Here we report five Japanese cases of BP associated with the agents. In our cases, BP occurred in the elderly by 4 different DPP-4 inhibitors, which showed various clinical manifestations in terms of latency period for BP, sex, glycemic control, and diabetes duration...

Bullous pemphigoid (BP) is a common autoimmune blistering disease that can be complicated by autoimmune disorders. We describe a patient with BP who developed membranous glomerulonephropathy (MN). Proteinuria decreased during the clinical course as anti-BP180 antibody titers decreased. This finding suggested an association between the pathogenesis of these two diseases in terms of immunological disorders.

A 41-year-old white man was treated for bullous pemphigoid (BP) for 4 years, using high-dose prednisone as well as ciclosporin and mycophenolate mofetil. Sustained clinical improvement was not observed. He suffered several serious side effects. Consequently, he was treated with a combination of rituximab (RTX) and intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIg). He received 12 infusions of RTX in 6 months and monthly IVIg until the end of the therapy. Within 5 weeks of this therapy, appearance of new lesions ceased. Within 8 weeks, all previous lesions resolved and previous medications were discontinued...

Experimental models of bullous pemphigoid (BP), the most frequent subepidermal autoimmune bullous disease, revealed that the immune response leading to blister formation represents an incompletely understood complex process involving different inflammatory cells. In contrast to previous reports commonly focusing on limited molecular and cellular phenotypes of the disease, the aim of this study was to investigate a broad spectrum of markers of cellular immune activation in patients with BP. We found that serum levels of soluble CD4, myeloperoxidase, S100A12, eosinophil cationic protein, and soluble P-selectin were significantly elevated in patients with active BP compared with normal controls...

REVIEW

Eosinophils are multifunctional granulocytes that contribute to initiation and modulation of inflammation. Their role in asthma and parasitic infections has long been recognized. Growing evidence now reveals a role for eosinophils in autoimmune diseases. In this review, we summarize the function of eosinophils in inflammatory bowel diseases, neuromyelitis optica, bullous pemphigoid, autoimmune myocarditis, primary biliary cirrhosis, eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis, and other autoimmune diseases...

BACKGROUND: Current treatment of bullous pemphigoid (BP) is based on the long-term use of topical and/or systemic corticosteroids associated with a high rate of adverse events and increased mortality. OBJECTIVE: To study the corticosteroid-sparing potential of azathioprine and dapsone. METHOD: A prospective, multicenter, randomized, non-blinded clinical trial that compares efficacy and safety of two parallel groups of BP patients treated with oral methylprednisolone 0...

Adverse reactions of subcutaneous low molecular weight heparin or unfractionated heparin could be complications by bleeding, heparin-induced thrombocytopenia, drug-induced liver injury, osteoporosis, and cutaneous reactions. Heparin-induced skin lesions vary from allergic reactions like erythema, urticaria, eczema to intradermal microvascular thrombosis associated with heparin-induced thrombocytopenia. There is a rare cutaneous complication, called bullous hemorrhagic dermatosis. We experienced this rare case of the cutaneous complication caused by enoxaparin...

BACKGROUND: We hypothesize that autoantibodies are induced after the blood-brain barrier is damaged by stroke and the risk of bullous pemphigoid (BP) is increased after stroke. We assess the risk of BP after first-ever stroke in a nationwide population-based cohort of first-ever stroke patients. METHODS: We extracted data from the Longitudinal Health Insurance Database 2005 and identified patients with first-ever stroke as well as control patients matched for age, gender, and year of enrollment...

Background. Acquired hemophilia A (AHA) is a rare condition, due to the spontaneous formation of neutralizing antibodies against endogenous factor VIII. About half the cases are associated with pregnancy, postpartum, autoimmune diseases, malignancies, or adverse drug reactions. Symptoms include severe and unexpected bleeding that may prove life-threatening. Case Study. We report a case of AHA associated with bullous pemphigoid (BP), a chronic, autoimmune, subepidermal, blistering skin disease. To our knowledge, this is the 25th documented case of such an association...

Hiroaki Iwata, Hideyuki Ujiie
Bullous pemphigoid (BP) is an autoimmune subepidermal blistering disease that clinically demonstrates tense blisters with widespread erythema, histologically demonstrates subepidermal blistering and immunologically demonstrates the presence of circulating autoantibodies against hemidesmosomal molecules. Complement activation has long been regarded as necessary for the generation of the BP. However, certain evidence has recently come to support non-complemental blistering mechanisms. The story of BP blistering mechanisms is a complicated one...
