Ordering Recommendation

Use as antibody panel for initial assessment of and disease monitoring in pemphigoid and linear IgA bullous dermatosis and to discriminate among the immunobullous skin diseases with epithelial basement membrane zone antibodies. Testing should be clinically supported and/or correlated with concurrent Cutaneous Direct Immunofluorescence, Biopsy (0092572).

Bullous pemphigoid and other pemphigoid variants, epidermolysis bullosa acquisita (EBA), and linear IgA bullous dermatosis present with similar clinical findings including blistering, erosions, pruritus, and urticaria, which affect skin and mucous membranes.

Panel components include IgG and IgA epithelial basement membrane zone antibodies and IgG bullous pemphigoid BP 180 and 230 antigens. To order individual component tests, refer to Epithelial Basement Membrane Zone Antibody IgG (0092056), Epithelial Basement Membrane Zone Antibody IgA (0092057), and Bullous Pemphigoid Antigens (180 kDa and 230 kDa), IgG (0092566).

Preferred panel is Basement Membrane Zone Antibody Panel (3001410), which also includes testing for EBA with the Collagen Type VII Antibody IgG by ELISA.

To assess for pemphigoid and other immunobullous diseases with epithelial antibodies, order concurrently with Pemphigus Antibody Panel - Epithelial Cell Surface Antibodies and Desmoglein 1 and Desmoglein 3 Antibodies, IgG (0090650), and Collagen Type VII Antibody IgG by ELISA (2010905).

Alternatively, order Immunobullous Disease Panel, Epithelial (3001409). Note that this test is included as part of the Immunobullous Disease Panel, Epithelial.
