Bullous pemphigoid (BP) is an acquired autoimmune disease characterized by subepidermal vesicles and bullae. The etiology
for BP is mostly idiopathic with the highest occurrence in elderly patients; however, it is now well-accepted that BP has
been triggered by or associated with drug therapy. We present a case of furosemide-induced bullous pemphigoid and review
the literature of drug-induced bullous pemphigoid (DIBP).
