Evidence-based management of bullous pemphigoid.
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. Systemic therapies such as corticosteroids and adjuvants are effective in BP but are plagued with adverse effects, and potent topical steroids are an alternative treatment. This article reviews the evidence supporting different therapeutic options in the management of BP.
