Pemphigoid gestationis: a rare pregnancy dermatosis treated with a combination of IVIg and rituximab.

BMJ Case Reports 2021 March 17
Pemphigoid gestationis is a rare autoimmune subepidermal bullous dermatosis occurring during pregnancy and post partum. A 32-year-old woman developed itchy urticarial wheals over the trunk and extremities at 6 months of gestation. This was not controlled with antihistamines, and 2 months later, the patient developed multiple vesiculobullous lesions. The patient had an exacerbation 3 weeks post-delivery. She did not go into remission for 6 months post partum despite treatment with prednisolone 40 mg/day, doxycycline 100 mg two times per day and dapsone 100 mg/day. The patient went into remission following treatment with three courses of intravenous immunoglobulin 2 mg/kg/course and 2 doses of rituximab 1 g at a 2-week interval.
