Arch Dermatol. 1979;115(6):678. doi:10.1001/archderm.1979.04010060004013

To the Editor.—  In the July 1978 issue of the Archives (114:1093-1094, 1978), Worsaae and Dabelsteen reported a case of benign mucous membrane pemphigoid (BMMP) in an 18-year-old woman and stated that they were unaware of a case in a younger person in the literature.In 1977, Sim-Davis and myself reported a case of BMMP in a 13-year-old girl.1 The patient, now 15 years old, still requires prednisolone and azathioprine to control the ulceration and scarring of oral and anogenital tunica mucosa.
