  • Bullous pemphigoid and mucous membrane pemphigoid (MMP) are uncommon autoimmune subepithelial blistering diseases that most frequently arise in older adults and are characterized by the presence of cutaneous bullae and erosive mucosal lesions. (uptodate.com)
  • Multiple events, including the binding of immunoglobulins to basement membrane zone components, the subsequent activation of complement, and the migration of inflammatory cells into the subepithelial tissue, likely contribute to the clinical manifestations of bullous pemphigoid and MMP.
