Caption: Bullous pemphigoid. Close-up of broken blisters on the skin of a 45-year-old male patient with bullous pemphigoid. This autoimmune skin disease is characterised by the presence of immunoglobulin G (IgG) autoantibodies that attack the skin proteins holding skin cells together at the junction between the epidermis and dermis. This attack results in painful, itchy blisters. Treatment involves corticosteroids or immunosuppressants.
