Abstract

Bullous pemphigoid is a common autoimmune skin disease characterized by the presence of subepidermal blisters. It has been associated with underlying neoplasia in isolated reports. A 78-year-old man with generalized blisters was diagnosed as bullous pemphigoid on clinical, histopathological and direct immunofluorescence grounds. His free and total prostate specific antigen (PSA) levels were high and histopathological examination of a prostate specimen revealed prostate adenocarcinoma. We present this rare case to discuss the possible association between bullous pemphigoid and prostate adenocarcinoma.
