Journal Article (Journal Article;Review)

Bullous pemphigoid (BP) is the most common autoimmune subepidermal bullous disease typically affecting the elderly. Although different therapeutic regimens have been proposed, a review of the evidence is needed to aid clinicians in their decision making and management.

This article reviews the evidence supporting different therapeutic options in the management of BP.
