Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Pemphigoid nodularis is a rare clinical variant of bullous pemphigoid characterized by overlapping clinical features of both prurigo nodularis lesions and bullous pemphigoid blisters. The condition appears to be more common in females and is often resistant to treatment.

OBJECTIVE:

To raise awareness of this rare variant of bullous pemphigoid.

METHODS:

Case report.

RESULTS AND CONCLUSION:

Dermatologists should include this variant in differential diagnosis of prurigo nodularis because early recognition can lead to an effective treatment for the prurigo component.
