Pemphigoid is a group of bullous diseases that have a diversified morphologic presentation and affects skin, oral mucosa and other mucosal membranes alone or in combination. In the literature, the condition has been subclassifed into bullous pemphigoid and cicatrcial pemphigoid (Mucous membrane pemphigoid) on the basis of primary organ of involvement. Oral pemphigoid, defined as cicatricial pemphigoid limited to the oral cavity, is a clinical subset of cicatricial pemphigoid. Like cicatricial pemphigoid, it occurs mostly in middle-aged women and it is uncommon in children under 20 years of age, with very few cases reported in the medical literature. We present a case of a 14-year-old girl with desquamative gingivitis as the only clinical presentation of this rare disease and lay emphasis on early recognition and clinical awareness.
