Mucous membrane pemphigoid (MMP) is a relatively rare chronic vesiculobullous disease that affects the mucosal surfaces, including the conjunctiva, oral cavity, larynx, esophagus, upper respiratory tract and genitalia as well as the skin. Recurrent lesions result in permanent scarring that causes morbidity and mortality. Desquamative gingivitis is the most characteristic feature of MMP and may mark the onset of the disease. In this article, we report the clinical manifestations, histological features and treatment of a case of MMP.
