Immunoelectron microscopic findings in oral mucosa of patients with dermatitis herpetiformis and linear IgA disease.
Scand J Dent Res. 1985 Jun; 93(3):243-8.SJ

Abstract

Two patients with dermatitis herpetiformis and one with linear IgA disease were examined. Two of the patients had oral lesions and all three showed IgA deposits detected by direct immunofluorescence in apparently normal buccal mucosa. To localize the target structures for IgA deposition, biopsy specimens were taken from normal appearing buccal mucosa for immunoelectron microscopy. The patients with dermatitis herpetiformis had distinct IgA deposits in the upper connective tissue. These were often associated with elastic fibers and occasionally also with capillary walls. In contrast, the patient with linear IgA disease had IgA deposition at the subbasal lamina. Though the clinical expressions may be similar the present immunoelectron microscopic findings in oral mucosa clearly differentiate dermatitis herpetiformis from liner IgA disease.
