Evidence of an association between bullous pemphigoid and psoriasis


British Journal of Dermatology 113(3): 281-284
Evidence of an association between bullous pemphigoid and psoriasis
The medical records of 62 consecutive patients with bullous pemphigoid and 62 case-matched leg ulcer controls were examined to determine whether psoriasis and bullous pemphigoid are associated. Psoriasis occurred in seven of the pemphigoid patients (11%) but in none of the controls. The prevalence of psoriasis in the pemphigoid sample was significantly higher than expected (P < 0.01, Poisson distribution). This difference, together with the clinical course, suggests that there may be an association between pemphigoid and psoriasis.
