“…In this study, positive DIF findings in apparently normal distant gingival tissue were achieved. However, it should be noted that the present authors and others often experienced friable epithelium beyond the perilesion areas in individuals with DG 17,19,27 . The present findings are consistent with those reported by Sano et al, 23 although they reported a lower percentage of successful diagnoses with both perilesion (66.1%) and distant (64.7%) sites.…”

“…[1][2][3][4][5] At times the gingival lesions are the only manifestation of these processes, making clinical differential diagnosis a challenge. [6][7][8] In recent years, reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM) has been employed as a tool for the 'in vivo' characterization of various skin diseases, mostly melanocytic naevi and melanoma.…”

“…DG varies from involvement of restricted areas of the gingiva (usually in the early phases of the disease) to widespread compromise of gingival structures 1–5 . At times the gingival lesions are the only manifestation of these processes, making clinical differential diagnosis a challenge 6–8 …”

“…Other authors advise sampling only the gingival epithelium after inducing its detachment with a finger or instrument [13,21]. However, this biopsy protocol is not feasible in case of pemphigus vulgaris because the epithelium cannot be detached.…”
