Pemphigoid Diseases as a Sign of Active Psoriasis: A Case Report and Brief Review

, : Pemphigoid Diseases as a Sign of Active Psoriasis: A Case Report and Brief Review. Dermatology 231(4): 319-321

Overlap of bullous pemphigoid (BP) with chronic psoriatic plaques (CPP) is a common condition. However, the association of BP with pustular psoriasis (PP) is uncommon. Moreover, perilesional erythema and pustular lesions on CPP are accepted as a sign of unstable psoriasis. Unstable psoriasis could be triggered by certain irritant topical treatments against psoriasis. These chemical agents could also induce a localized pattern of generalized PP. Here, we describe BP and PP collision in unstable CPP. By this observation we suggest that BP could be a sign of active psoriasis. Presumably, psoriasis-induced BP is an inflammation activity-dependent condition. This study is a case report and literature review. The dramatic response of bullo-pustular lesions to short-term methotrexate (MTX) treatment suggests the rule of 'no psoriasis, no BP'. Presumably, MTX supressed the active inflammation of CPP and BP disappeared following CPP control. BP can be a sign of active psoriasis in the present case.

We show by simulations that a nonlinear optical loop mirror with birefringent fiber can have intensity-dependent transmission of vector soliton pulses with a 50/50 coupler. Using this result we propose two mode-locked laser cavity designs.
