Cicatricial pemphigoid (kindhearted film pemphigoid) is a constant, scarring infection with a preference for the mucosal surfaces. The most ordinarily included mucosal surfaces are the oral mucosa. conjunctivae, larynx, genitalia, and throat. Not at all like bullous pemphigoid, cicatricial pemphigoid indicates minimal inclination to go into abatement.
Skin injuries might be of three sorts:
1. scattered tense rankles that recuperate without scarring, as with bullous pemphigoid.
2. one or a few ranges of erythema with intermittent rankles and atrophic scarring, and
3. the Brunsting-Perry sort, which in like manner comprises of confined patches of erythema or rankles that scar yet without mucous film inclusion.
The nearness of a direct testimony of IgG and C3 along the storm cellar layer zone in cicatricial pemphigoid recommends that it is a variation of a similar malady handle as bullous pemphigoid.
Be that as it may, dissimilar to bullous pemphigoid, aberrant immunofluorescence will be certain for circling cellar film zone antibodies in just 10 for every penny of patients.
