Bullous pemphigoid and associated malignant neoplasms

Abstract: To evaluate the significance of the association of systemic malignant disease with bullous pemphigoid, we reviewed the records of patients with bullous pemphigold seen at the Mayo Clinic between 1960 and 1972. Data from 73 patients with bullous pemphigoid were compared with data from 146 controls (73 with contact dermatitis and 73 with psoriasis) matched for age, sex, and calendar year of diagnosis. In the three groups, eight patients with bullous pemphigoid, 11 with contact dermatitis, and ten with psoriasis … Show more

“…Chorzelski et al (1978) found malignancy in twelve out of 110 patients with bullous pemphigoid (i i %), the expected number of cases in a comparable control group being 0-537 males and 0-293 females. However, other large series of cases have suggested that the relationship is coincidental (Lim, MacDonald & Rook, 1968;Parsons & Savin, 1968;Paslin, 1973;Stone & Schroeter, 1975;Ahmed, Chu & Provost, 1977a;Savin, 1979). Person & Rogers (1977), whilst subscribing to this latter view, found that malignancy was more common in those patients with bullous pemphigoid and negative indirect immunofiuorescence findings, 25% of such patients being affected (six out of twenty-six) compared with only 9% of those with positive findings (five out of fifty-five).…”

“…There is mixed evidence on whether BP is more common among people with a history of malignant cancer than in those without. Some case control studies have not found significant associations with malignancy [6,11,18]. Other studies have found significantly increased risks of cancers as co-morbidity with BP, and some authors have recommended detailed examination and screening for internal malignancy in all patients diagnosed with BP [3,5,14,16].…”

“…However, an elevated risk of BP was noted in the subgroup with kidney cancer, laryngeal cancer and lymphoid leukaemia . In contrast, other studies found no significant association between BP and cancers . The coexistence of cancer and BP may be the result of a chance occurrence of both conditions in the same age group .…”

“…The relationship between cancer and BP is controversial. Several studies have investigated this relationship, including case reports, hospital‐based case–control studies and nationwide population‐based cohort studies . However, there is no consensus between these studies.…”
