Abstract

Cicatricial pemphigoid presents with oral or ocular inflammation and blisters that are followed by scarring. The differential diagnosis of cicatricial mucositis includes other subepithelial blistering disorders. The disease is usually chronic and can be associated with high morbidity. Treatment of severe cases with immunosuppressive agents is usually helpful.
