Abstract

In this 72 year old white woman the occurrence of bullous pemphigoid during the course of chronic lymphocytic leukemia was confirmed by the demonstration of circulating antibodies specific for the subepithelial basement membrane zone, corresponding to the site of bullous formation. These antibodies are not found in other bullous lesions, such as pemphigus, bullous dermatitis herpetiformis or erythema multiforme. It is proposed that bullous pemphigoid may be an immunologic disease.
