Abstract
Introduction: Benign mucous membrane pemphigoid is a disorder that is autoimmune in nature and is characterized by subepithelial bulla formation. It may involve multiple mucosal sites that include oral cavity, conjunctiva, larynx, esophagus, genitourinary tract and anus. An early detection of this disease and its treatment may decrease its complications.
Case Report: An Indian 54-year-old female reported with ulcers in the mouth since few months. On examination multiple vesicles were noted on the hard palate, labial mucosa and also ulcerative lesions on the entire oral mucosa except the gingiva. Evidence of symblepharon and ulcers in the larynx showed an extensive involvement of extraoral mucosae. Microscopic examination showed a subepithelial split suggestive of benign mucous membrane pemphigoid.
Conclusion: Thus we hereby report an advanced case of benign mucous membrane pemphigoid. The choice of treatment depends on the site of involvement, its severity and progression. Thus oral physicians should therefore thoroughly examine the other mucosal sites in obtaining a proper diagnosis.

Keywords: Mucous membrane pemphigoid (MMP), Oral, Ocular, Subepithelial bulla
