• Normal skin was transplanted into a cicatricial plaque in a patient affected with localized, benign pemphigoid of the Brunsting-Perry type. Eight weeks later, the transplanted tissue was removed and found to have IgG at the basement membrane zone on immunofluorescence microscopy. Subepidermal bullae developed at the graft-donor site. Local factors and trauma may be important in the pathogenesis of this variant of cicatricial pemphigoid.
