Abstract

Cicatricial pemphigoid is an autoimmune disease predominantly of elderly patients. Recently, a subtype of cicatricial pemphigoid with antibodies to epiligrin (laminin 5) was described. We report a patient in whom anti- epiligrin cicatricial pemphigoid was identified. He presented with cutaneous, oral and ocular involvement. He has shown initial improvement on corticosteroids and cyclophosphamide.
