Skin lesions may or may not be present. Pemphigus vulgaris is usually a disease of older people, with females being more affected than males. The oral mucosa is involved initially in about 50% of cases of pemphigus vulgaris, and indeed oral involvement can precede involvement at other sites. Most cases are pemphigus vulgaris since pemphigus vegetans is extremely rare. DIAGNOSIS Attempts to demonstrate Nikolsky’s sign (mucosa lifting from the underlying connective tissue on pressure) should be resisted due to the production of further lesions.
Reactivation of HSV can also produce recurrent intra-oral ulceration. Similar to herpes labialis, the patient with an intra-oral lesion is usually aware of prodromal tingling. The mucosa of the hard palate is the site most frequently involved (82, 83) but other areas such as the lower buccal sulcus or gingival margins (84) can also be affected. It can be difficult to determine whether the lesion(s) were precipitated by trauma in these patients or whether they chronically shed HSV in their saliva which subsequently colonizes traumatized mucosa.
A clinical history of BMT coupled with oral lesions may lead one to suspect GVHD; however, biopsy material is frequently nonspecific or may resemble lichen planus or lupus erythematosus. MANAGEMENT The most important management strategy is prevention. Careful HLA matching of BMT donor and recipient is important. Modulation of the immune response in the recipient is necessary, using immunosuppressive medications such as ciclosporin (cyclosporin). Psoralen and ultra-violet A (PUVA) therapy is helpful for cutaneous lesions.
