To the Editor. —
Drs Nils Worsaae and Erik Dabelsteen, in a letter published in the July 1978 issue of the Archives (114:1093-1094, 1978), report the case of an 18-year-old woman with benign mucous membrane pemphigoid. They state that, to their knowledge, this is the youngest patient suffering from this entity to be described. In fact, a case of benign mucous membrane pemphigoid in a girl aged 13 years was reported at a meeting of the St John's Hospital Dermatological Society in November 1976, and subsequently reported in full by Drs D. S. Jolliffe and D. Sim-Davis in Clinical and Experimental Dermatology (2:281, 1977).
