Mucous membrane pemphigoid Treatment experience at two institutions Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • The initial oral findings and treatment in 50 cases of mucous membrane pemphigoid are presented. Histologic and immunologic studies were undertaken in each case to confirm the clinical diagnosis. The treatments prescribed are summarized and illustrate that topical steroids are effective, but in some cases systemic steroid therapy with or without other immunologically active drugs is required. A significant number of patients had extraoral manifestations of the disorder.
