Learn About Cicatricial Pemphigoid

What is the definition of Cicatricial Pemphigoid?
Mucous membrane pemphigoid is a rare, chronic, blistering and scarring disease that affects the oral and ocular mucosa. Other mucosal sites that might be affected include the nasopharnyx, larynx, genitalia, rectum, and esophagus. Scarring of the affected mucosa of the eye may lead to blindness. A combination of environmental and genetic factors appear to play a role in the susceptibility of developing cicatricial pemphigoid. Although the specific causes of this condition have not been identified, it is considered an autoimmune disease that is characterized by the production of autoantibodies against basement membrane zone antigens such as BP180, BP230, and laminin 5.

Clinical Evaluation of New Treatment Strategy of Mucous Membrane Pemphigoid Using Large Dose of Prednisolone Plus Intra-lesional of Triamcinolone Acetonide Followed by Combination of Mycophenolate Mofetil, Dapsone and Low Dose Prednisolone

Summary: Abstract: Mucous membrane pemphigoid (MMP) is an autoimmune blistering disorder characterized by inflammation, blistering, and scarring and predominantly occurring at mucous membranes. Successful treatment can be challenging, and uncontrolled disease may result in significant morbidity with scarring of the conjunctiva and oropharynx leading to blindness and dysphagia. Therefore successful treatmen...
