Ordering Recommendation

Use to assess and monitor pemphigoid, pemphigoid variants, and linear IgA disease and to discriminate among the immunobullous diseases with epithelial basement membrane zone antibodies. May be indicated by concurrent Direct Immunofluorescence, Tissue Biopsy (Cutaneous, Mucosal, Epithelial) (0092572). Preferred initial diagnostic serum panel is Basement Membrane Zone Antibody Panel (3001410).

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

To assess for other immunobullous diseases with diagnostic serum epithelial antibodies in addition to pemphigoid, order concurrently with Pemphigus Antibody Panel, IgG (0090650) and Collagen Type VII Antibody, IgG by ELISA (2010905). Alternatively, order Immunobullous Disease Antibody Panel (3001409).
