Bullous pemphigoid (BP) is an acquired autoimmune disease that affects mainly the elderly and is characterized by subepidermal blistering. The drug-induced variant of BP follows the oral or (sometimes) topical administration of specific drugs. More than 50 different drugs have been associated with the appearance of BP, and as new therapies emerge, this number is very likely to increase. Drug-induced BP is difficult to differentially diagnose from its idiopathic counterpart, as the clinical picture and histopathological findings in both conditions may have only subtle differences. After withdrawal of the suspect medication, most patients respond rapidly to treatment and do not experience relapses. We report a case of BP following administration of certain medication.
