  • 23. Paraneoplastic Pemphigus  Simulate pemphigus vulgaris clinically  Associated with lymphoma or other malignancies  Histopathologically and IF is different Aiman A. Ali DDS, PhD.
  • 24. Cicatricial Pemphigoid Aiman A. Ali DDS, PhD.
  • 25. Etiology  Benign mucous membrane pemphigoid, ocular pemphigus, childhood pemphigoid, and mucosal pemphigoid  Idiopathic autoimmune disease  Deposit of IG and complement components along the basement zone  Usually no circulating antibodies Aiman A. Ali DDS, PhD.

  • 27. Clinical features  More common among adult women  Chronic lesions appear as vesiculo-bullous eruptions involve oral mucosa, which heal with scaring  When affects gingiva exclusively is referred to as gingivosis or desquamative gingivitis  Other sites: conjunctiva, larynx, genitalia, and esophagus  Skin lesions are uncommon  Nikolsky’s sign is positive Aiman A. Ali DDS, PhD.
  • 28. Histopathology  Sub-basal clefting with clear cut separation at the basement membrane  No evidence of acantholysis  Variable infiltration with lymphocytes, plasma cells and occasionally eosinoand neutrophils  Blood vessels often are dilated Aiman A. Ali DDS, PhD.
  • 29. Aiman A. Ali DDS, PhD.
  • 30. Aiman A. Ali DDS, PhD.
  • 31. Immunofluorescence  Direct IF of intact oral mucosa demonstrate linear pattern of IgG fluorescence  Occasionally IgA may detected  Complement components are commonly found  Indirect IF studies are usually negative Aiman A. Ali DDS, PhD.

  • 35. Differential diagnosis Pemphigus vulgaris Erosive lichen planus Aiman A. Ali DDS, PhD.
  • 36. Aiman A. Ali DDS, PhD.
  • 37. Treatment  Topical corticosteroids (betamethasone dexamethasone…etc)  In severe cases systemic SAIDs with immunosuppressive agents Aiman A. Ali DDS, PhD.
  • 38. Aiman A. Ali DDS, PhD.
  • 39. Bullous pemphigoid Aiman A. Ali DDS, PhD.
  • 40. Etiology  Similar to cicatricial pemphigoid  There are circulating autoantibodies to basement membrane zone antigen  Degeneration of basement membrane attachment complexes  Separation occur at the lamina lucida plane
  • 41. Clinical features  Very common in the 7th and 8th decades  Lesions affect the skin
  • 42. Histopathology  Normal HP the same of CP  Ultrastructurally: the basement membrane is cleaved at the level of lamina lucida
  • 43. Immunopathology  There is a detectable level of circulating antibodies in 70% of cases  However, no correlation with the level of clinical disease  IF findings corresponding to those in CP
  • 44. Treatment  Systemic corticosteroids
  • 45. Dermatitis herpetiformis
  • 46. Etiology  Unknown cause  Deposits of  No IgA in the skin and mucosa circulating autoantibodies in the patient’s serum
  • 47. Clinical features  Chronic disease typically seen in young adults  Cutaneous disease, rarely appear in the oral cavity  Symmetrical aggregated vesicular lesions of the skin with face and scalp involvement  Periods of exacerbation and remission  Iodide component exacerbate some cases  Orally lesions appear as superficial ulcers with fibrinous base preceded by vesicles
  • 48. Histopathology  Accumulation of neutrophils and eosinophils producing dermal micro-abscess  Connective tissue become necrotic and the overlying epithelium separate  Formation of subepithelial vesicle
  • 49. Immunopathology  Immunofluorescent staining is positive at the epidermal-dermal junction  Almost IgA alone or in combination with IgG or IgM
  • 50. Treatment  It dose not respond to SAIDs  Sulfapyridine is the  Gluten-free diet treatment of choice
  • 51. Linear IgA Disease
  • 52.  IgA deposits at the dermal-epidermal junction in linear pattern  Not associated with gluten-sensitive enteropathy  Common oral lesions  Separation at the basement membrane
  • 53. Epidermolysis Bullosa
  • 54. Etiology  Hereditary disease  In one type acquired  Formation of blisters at sites of minor trauma
  • 55. Clinical features  Muco-Cutaneous disease  It has several different forms:  EB Simplex  EB dystrophic dominant  EB dystrophic recessive (Oral Manifestations)  Junctional EB  EB Acquista  Very common in • Hereditary (newborns and early childhood) • Acquired (adulthood)
  • 56. Treatment Symptomatic
