Abstract

Bullous pemphigoid has been rarely described in association with renal abnormalities, including membranous glomerulonephropathy, and it has been approximately 20 years since this association was last reported. We describe a case of a male patient with a concurrent onset of bullous pemphigoid and membranous glomerulonephropathy and discuss this rare association. A definite common immunologic mechanism that links the two disorders remains elusive.
