Oral Medicine: Clinical Practice Guidelines Cicatrical pemphigoid (benign mucous membrane pemphigoid)


Pages: 429-437
PMID: 9759059

Cicatricial pemphigoid is a chronic mucocutaneous bullous condition. It is a heterogenous autoimmune diseas, chraracterized by the production of autoantibodies against basement membrane zone antigens. The target antigens in cicatricial pemphigoid appear to be lamina lucida proteins involved in human keratinocyte adhesion to extracellular matrix. Cicatricial pemphigoid primarily affects persons older than 40 years and appears to have a 2:1 predilection for women, without racial or geographic bias.
