Association of Bullous Pemphigoid With Immune Checkpoint Inhibitor Therapy in Patients With Cancer: A Systematic Review.

JAMA Dermatol 2022 May 25. Epub 2022 May 25.

Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts.

Importance: There is limited information on immune checkpoint inhibitor-induced bullous pemphigoid (ICI-BP) in patients with cancer, with most existing studies being case reports or small case series from a single institution. Prior review attempts have not approached the literature in a systematic manner and have focused only on ICI-BP secondary to anti-programmed cell death 1 (PD-1) or programmed cell death ligand 1 (PD-L1) therapy. The current knowledge base of all aspects of ICI-BP is limited. Read More

Case Report: Bullous Pemphigoid Associated With Morphea and Lichen Sclerosus: Coincidental Diseases or Pathogenetic Association?

Front Immunol 2022 3;13:887279. Epub 2022 May 3.

Department of Experimental and Clinical Medicine, University of Florence, Florence, Italy.

Bullous pemphigoid (BP) represents the most common autoimmune bullous disease and is characterized by IgG autoantibodies targeting collagen XVII (BP180). BP has reportedly been occurred in association with other inflammatory skin diseases. Here, we describe the unusual occurrence of BP in a female patient with a concomitant history of generalized morphea (localized scleroderma, LoS) and cutaneous and genital lichen sclerosus (LiS).

Bullous Pemphigoid Following the Moderna mRNA-1273 Vaccine.

Cureus 2022 Apr 13;14(4):e24126. Epub 2022 Apr 13.

Dermatology, Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, New Brunswick, USA.

As the onset of novel variants of the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 virus pushes policy-makers to push widespread vaccination efforts, it is likely that an increased number of severe cutaneous adverse reactions (SCARs) will present. Therefore, it is important to understand the presentation of possible SCARs. However, data are limited regarding which SCARs are most likely to be found following vaccination, and specific presentations in certain demographic groups, such as postmenopausal women, remain widely unknown.

Treatment of bullous pemphigoid with dupilumab: Dupilumab exerts its effect by primarily suppressing T-helper 2 cytokines.

J Dermatol 2022 May 10. Epub 2022 May 10.

Department of Dermatology, Saitama Medical Center, Saitama Medical University, Saitama, Japan.

We report a patient with bullous pemphigoid (BP) who was successfully treated with dupilumab monotherapy. To clarify the underlying mechanism of this effective treatment, we investigated the dynamics of a variety of cytokine-producing T cells before and after treatment in the circulation and in blister fluid using flow cytometry. The patient was a 72-year-old woman who had a pruritic eruption consisting of erythema and tense blisters on the whole body. Read More

The clinical evolution of lichen planus pemphigoides.

Proc (Bayl Univ Med Cent) 2022 4;35(3):352-353. Epub 2022 Feb 4.

Department of Dermatology, Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, Lubbock, Texas.

Lichen planus pemphigoides (LPP) is a rare autoimmune subepidermal blistering disease characterized by lichenoid and bullous lesions. LPP is generally thought to be idiopathic, possibly related to medication or malignancy, or potentially the result of long-standing lichenoid inflammation damaging the basement membrane zone leading to epitope spreading. The histological appearance of lichenoid and bullous lesions in LPP resembles findings of lichen planus and bullous pemphigoid, respectively. Read More

Rapid Disease Control in First-Line Therapy-Resistant Mucous Membrane Pemphigoid and Bullous Pemphigoid with Omalizumab as Add-On Therapy: A Case Series Of 13 Patients.

Front Immunol 2022 20;13:874108. Epub 2022 Apr 20.

Department of Dermatology and Referral Center for Autoimmune Bullous Diseases (MALIBUL), Avicenne Hospital, Hôpitaux Universitaires de Paris Seine-Saint-Denis, AP-HP, Université Sorbonne Paris Nord, Bobigny, France.

The role of IgE autoantibodies has been demonstrated in the pathogenesis of bullous pemphigoid for many years. Recently, omalizumab (OMZ), a humanized monoclonal anti-IgE antibody that depletes total serum IgE, has been used off-label in a few case series of bullous pemphigoids demonstrating a rapid efficacy and allowing significant improvements or complete remission as add-on therapy in first-line treatment-resistant patients. Herein, we report the largest retrospective study to evaluate OMZ effectiveness in patients with subepidermal autoimmune blistering diseases. Read More

Bullous pemphigoid associated with squamous cell lung carcinoma showing remarkable response to carboplatin-based chemotherapy:  a case report.

J Med Case Rep 2022 May 5;16(1):184. Epub 2022 May 5.

Northwest Cancer Centre, Tamworth Hospital, Dean Street, Tamworth, NSW, 2340, Australia.

Background: Bullous pemphigoid is an uncommon dermatologic manifestation seen in squamous cell lung cancer, and evidence guiding optimal treatment, especially in the elderly population, is limited. We report herein a case of squamous cell lung cancer diagnosed after being investigated for refractory bullous pemphigoid showing marked response to carboplatin-based chemotherapy. This is the first case report that shows carboplatin can be used as an effective alternative in treatment of malignancy-associated bullous pemphigoid. Read More

Gut Dysbiosis in Ocular Mucous Membrane Pemphigoid.

Front Cell Infect Microbiol 2022 14;12:780354. Epub 2022 Apr 14.

Academic Unit of Ophthalmology, Institute of Inflammation and Ageing, University of Birmingham, Birmingham, United Kingdom.

Mucous Membrane Pemphigoid is an orphan multi-system autoimmune scarring disease involving mucosal sites, including the ocular surface (OcMMP) and gut. Loss of tolerance to epithelial basement membrane proteins and generation of autoreactive T cell and/or autoantibodies are central to the disease process. The gut microbiome plays a critical role in the development of the immune system. Read More
