Pemphigoid is a group of rare autoimmune diseases affecting the skin and the mucous membrane in which the autoantibodies are directed against the basement membrane zone target antigens causing subepithelial blistering. Oral health professionals are usually the first to identify as more than 90% of cases show oral lesions initially. A lack of diagnostic criteria can lead to misdiagnosis and delay in treatment. We report a unique case of mucous membrane pemphigoid devoid of ocular or cutaneous involvement.
