Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Subepidermal (subepithelial) autoimmune blistering dermatoses are a group of rare skin disorders characterized by the disruption of the dermal-epidermal junction through the action of autoantibodies. The fourth article in this continuing medical education series presents the current validated disease activity scoring systems, serologic parameters, treatments, and clinical trials for bullous pemphigoid, mucous membrane pemphigoid, epidermolysis bullosa acquisita, bullous systemic lupus erythematosus, anti-p200 pemphigoid, linear IgA bullous dermatosis, and dermatitis herpetiformis.
