Abstract

Purpose: Bullous pemphigoid is an autoimmune blistering disorder that commonly develops in elderly subjects who are prone to an increased risk of mortality and morbidity. Although a few cases of dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitors have been reported earlier, the etiology of bullous pemphigoid is not entirely clear.
