Specific dermatoses of pregnancy other than pemphigoid gestationis.

G Ital Dermatol Venereol 2018 Oct 29. Epub 2018 Oct 29.

Section of Dermatology, Department of Surgery and Translational Medicine, University of Florence, Florence, Italy.

Specific dermatoses of pregnancy are skin disorders that occur specifically during or immediately after pregnancy and cannot be found in non-pregnant patients. According to the current consensus, they include atopic eruption of pregnancy (AEP), polymorphic eruption of pregnancy (PEP), pemphigoid gestationis (PG), and intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy (ICP). The diagnosis of specific dermatoses of pregnancy can be challenging due to their variation in clinical presentation; moreover, the tests currently available do not always provide the clue for the diagnosis.

Autoimmune bullous diseases during pregnancy: insight into pathogenetic mechanisms and clinical features.

G Ital Dermatol Venereol 2018 Oct 29. Epub 2018 Oct 29.

Dermatology Unit, Department of Physiopathology and Transplantation, Fondazione IRCCS Ca' Granda, Ospedale Maggiore Policlinico, Milan, Italy -

Pemphigoid gestationis (PG), also known as herpes gestationis, is the prototypic pregnancy-associated autoimmune bullous disease (AIBD), but also the other AIBDs, notably pemphigus vulgaris, may begin or exacerbate during pregnancy. Although the increase in concentration of T and B regulatory cells makes pregnancy a state of increased immunologic tolerance toward the semiallogeneic fetal antigens, a prevalent T helper (Th) 2 profile, that is reported to be associated with pregnancy, may cause exacerbation of pemphigus and AIBDs in general during this period. Active disease may lead to stillbirth, spontaneous abortion, preterm pregnancy, low birthweight, and neonatal pemphigus. Read More

Pemphigoid gestationis and intravenous immunoglobulin therapy.

Int J Womens Dermatol 2018 Sep 3;4(3):166-169. Epub 2018 May 3.

Department of Dermatology, St. George Hospital, Sydney, Australia.

Pemphigoid gestationis, which is also known as herpes gestationis, is a rare, pregnancy-associated, autoimmune bullous disease. Treatment depends on the severity of the disease for each patient and the safety and use of these drugs during pregnancy and breastfeeding must be taken into consideration to guide their use. We describe the therapeutic response of two cases of pemphigoid gestationis that did not respond to conventional immunosuppressive therapy or adverse effects limited their use. Read More

A subset of patients with pemphigoid (herpes) gestationis has serological evidence of celiac disease.

Int J Dermatol 2018 May 23;57(5):534-540. Epub 2018 Feb 23.

Immunodermatology Laboratory, Department of Dermatology, School of Medicine, University of Utah, Salt Lake City, UT, USA.

Background: Pemphigoid (herpes) gestationis (PG) is an uncommon, self-limited disease with other autoimmune associations; however, celiac disease (CD) is not recognized as one.

Methods: From 71 patients' sera submitted for herpes gestationis factor (HGF) testing over a 5-year period, 12 were consistent with PG demonstrating HGF and increased IgG BP180 antibody levels; these sera were tested for IgA and IgG endomysial antibodies (EMA), epithelial basement membrane zone and cell surface antibodies by indirect immunofluorescence, and for IgA and IgG tissue transglutaminase (transglutaminase 2 or TG2) antibodies, IgA epidermal transglutaminase (transglutaminase 3 or TG3) antibodies, IgG BP230, and IgG desmoglein 1 and desmoglein 3 antibodies by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISAs).

Results: Three of 12 patients' sera with PG (25%) had CD antibodies with positive IgA EMA and increased IgA TG2 antibody levels; two of these had positive IgG EMA, and one other had an increased IgA TG3 antibody level. Read More

Treatment of Autoimmune Bullous Disorders in Pregnancy.

Am J Clin Dermatol 2018 Jun;19(3):391-403

Corporal Michael J. Crescenz VAMC, Philadelphia, PA, USA.

Autoimmune bullous diseases (AIBD), including pemphigus, bullous pemphigoid, epidermolysis bullosa acquisita, mucous membrane pemphigoid, and pemphigoid gestationis, pose significant therapeutic challenges, especially in pregnant and post-partum breastfeeding patients or those planning to conceive. Data on the safety and efficacy of therapeutic interventions during the perinatal period are lacking because randomized controlled trials are typically not performed in this setting. However, many of the treatments for AIBD are also used in other diseases, so data can be extrapolated from studies or case reports in these other patient populations. Read More

J Dermatol 2018 Apr 4;45(4):472-474. Epub 2017 Dec 4.

Department of Geriatric and Environmental Dermatology, Nagoya City University Graduate School of Medical Sciences, Nagoya, Japan.

Subepidermal autoimmune blistering disease including bullous pemphigoid, pemphigoid gestationis, mucous membrane pemphigoid, anti-laminin-γ1 pemphigoid, linear immunoglobulin A bullous disease and epidermolysis bullosa acquisita (EBA), are all characterized by direct immunofluorescence microscopy or immunoglobulin deposition on the basement membrane zone. Among them, EBA is a rare acquired subepidermal autoimmune blistering disease of the skin and mucous membranes reactive with type VII collagen, a major component of the epidermal basement membrane zone. Anti-laminin-332-type mucous membrane pemphigoid has pathogenic autoantibodies against laminin-332, which is a basement membrane heterotrimeric protein composed of α3, β3 and γ2 laminin chains.

Department of Pathology, University of Massachusetts Medical School, UMass Memorial Medical Center, Worcester, MA.

Direct immunofluorescence (DIF) on frozen tissue (DIF-F) is the method of choice for the identification of immune deposits present in skin and other tissues. DIF can also be performed on formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue (DIF-P) after antigen retrieval with proteases and has proven to be of value in renal pathology. However, its utility in skin biopsies has not been fully examined. Read More

Lichen planus pemphigoides associated with pregnancy mimicking pemphigoid gestationis.

Cutis 2016 Jun;97(6):E20-4

Department of Dermatology, University of Puerto Rico School of Medicine, Río Piedras.

Lichen planus pemphigoides (LPP) is a rare condition characterized by tense blisters that arise on lesions of lichen planus (LP) and on unaffected skin. We present the case of a 25-year-old pregnant woman at 12 weeks' gestation who developed an acute bullous eruption after 5 months of worsening LP. Similarities to pemphigoid gestationis (PG) included lesions around the periumbilical area and multiple urticarial erythematous papules and plaques in addition to linear C3 and IgM deposition along the basement membrane zone (BMZ) on direct immunofluorescence (DIF).

Department of Dermatology, Allergy, and Venereology, University of Lübeck, Ratzeburger Allee 160, 23538 Lübeck, Germany.

Pemphigoid gestationis (PG) is the only autoimmune disease exclusively emerging in pregnancy. It belongs to the pemphigoid group of disorders, a class of autoimmune blistering skin diseases featuring an immune response against different hemidesmosomal proteins. PG is caused by a break of immunotolerance against the hemidesmosomal protein BP180. Read More
