Immunotherapy has revolutionized cancer therapy in recent years but is associated with unique immunologically-mediated adverse effects. Immunotherapy-induced bullous pemphigoid is an uncommon but established reaction that portends significant management implication as in most instances systemic treatment is required. We report a case of immunotherapy-associated bullous pemphigoid in a marked photodistribution, highlighting the diverse clinical presentations of this eruption.

Reply to: Comment on "Oral diabetes medications other than dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitors are not associated with bullous pemphigoid: A Finnish nationwide case control study" and a case report of glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonist induced bullous pemphigoid.
Bullous pemphigoid (BP) autoantibody levels are generally elevated in patients with BP but can be present nonspecifically in patients without BP.
Bullous pemphigoid (BP) is the most common autoimmune bullous disease. Whether there is an increased risk for subsequent BP among cancer patients is still unclear.
Bullous pemphigoid is the most common autoimmune blistering disorder in the elderly. It affects people aged 70 years or older. Clinically it is characterized by intensely pruritic eruption consistin...
An elderly Caucasian woman developed bullous pemphigoid (BP) overlying the site of total knee arthroplasty for osteoarthritis 2 days after surgery. The clinical findings were consistent with blisterin...
Bullous pemphigoid affects mainly elderly patients. It is often associated with neurologic disorders, which represent a major risk factor of the disease
The aim of the study is to assess that it will be possible to control with a single cycle of rituximab patient with bullous pemphigoid.
The primary objective is to test the safety and efficacy of Xolair in the treatment of the autoimmune blistering disease, bullous pemphigoid (BP). This is a pilot, open label case-control...
Patients diagnosed with bullous pemphigoid were confirmed based on the investigators national diagnostic criteria. Patients who meet all inclusion criteria and conflict the exclusion crite...
Bullous pemphigoid is the most common subepidermal autoimmune blistering disease of the skin in European countries, including France. Immunologically, BP is characterized by the productio...
An itching, autoimmune, bullous SKIN disease that occurs during the last two trimesters of PREGNANCY and PUERPERIUM. It also affects non-pregnant females with tissue of PLACENTA origin, such as CHORIOCARCINOMA; or HYDATIDIFORM MOLE. It exhibits antigenic and clinical similarity to bullous pemphigoid (PEMPHIGOID, BULLOUS). This disease does not involve herpes viruses (old name, herpes gestationis).
A chronic and relatively benign subepidermal blistering disease usually of the elderly and without histopathologic acantholysis.
A chronic blistering disease with predilection for mucous membranes and less frequently the skin, and with a tendency to scarring. It is sometimes called ocular pemphigoid because of conjunctival mucous membrane involvement.
Designation for several severe forms of ichthyosis, present at birth, that are characterized by hyperkeratotic scaling. Infants may be born encased in a collodion membrane which begins shedding within 24 hours. This is followed in about two weeks by persistent generalized scaling. The forms include bullous (HYPERKERATOSIS, EPIDERMOLYTIC), non-bullous (ICHTHYOSIS, LAMELLAR), wet type, and dry type.
Abnormally high temperature intentionally induced in living things regionally or whole body. It is most often induced by radiation (heat waves, infra-red), ultrasound, or drugs.
Biological therapy involves the use of living organisms, substances derived from living organisms, or laboratory-produced versions of such substances to treat disease. Some biological therapies for cancer use vaccines or bacteria to stimulate the body&rs...
