A rare chronic disease involving blistering and scarring of the mucous membranes especially in the mouth and conjunctiva of the eye.


* Red inflamed mucous membrane * Blisters on mucous membranes * Scarring on mucous membranes * Red eyes * Inflamed eyes


Oral pemphigoid can often be controlled by topical or systemic corticosteroids or other immunosuppressive agents, particularly cyclophosphamide, but there is no cure for this disease. Lesions occur intermittently and may affect different parts of the oral mucosa at different times.
