Cicatricial pemphigoid – case report
Dorota Kwaśniewicz, Rafał Białynicki-Birula, Maria Zalesska-Kręcicka, Eugeniusz Baran, Monika Morawska-Kochman

Cicatricial pemphigoid (CP) (new name: mucous membrane
pemphigoid, MMP) is a rare bullous autoimmune-related
disorder which affects mainly people over 60 years old.
Antibodies IgG against a basement membrane of an epidermis
are detected in the serum, and deposits of IgG and complement
C3 are visible in the direct immunofluorescnece test. Damage
results in bullae at the dermo-epidermal junction, which are
cicatrized. Blisters are found usually on mucous membrane, but
they may also appear on dermis. Ophthalmic lesions that may
sometimes result in blindness belong to the most characteristic
features of the disorder. A difficult-to-diagnose case of a 70
year old woman who developed cicatricial pemphigoid has
been reported.
