Lichen planus pemphigoides (LPP) is a rare condition with characteristic clinical, histological and immunopathological features, in which a lichenoid eruption is found in association with bullae on both involved and apparently normal skin. We present two patients to illustrate the diverse clinical manifestations of this disease.
