Lichen planus pemphigoides is a rare autoimmune dermatosis characterized by bullous lesions arising on lichen planus (LP) papules and on clinically uninvolved skin, coexistence of histological features of LP and bullous pemphigoid and linear deposits of IgG and/or C3 along the basal membrane zone on direct immunofluorescence of peribullous skin. LPP has been reported to be associated with several medications such as ramipril, cinnarizine, simvastatin, captopril, psoralen ultraviolet A therapy and antituberculous medications. We report a case of a 41-year-old woman with LPP associated with a weight reduction drug.
