Abstract

Pemphigoid nodularis is a rare variant of bullous pemphigoid. Bullous pemphigoid complicated by internal malignancy has been well documented. There have been only a few reported cases of bullous pemphigoid associated with Kaposi's sarcoma. We described a case of pemphigoid nodularis who later developed Kaposi's sarcoma that might be related to immunosupressive therapy, a situation that has not been reported previously.
