Abstract

To the Editor: The association between neurologic diseases and bullous pemphigoid (BP) is well established.1 However, it has not yet been established whether drugs that affect the nervous system can influence the onset of BP. The aim of this study was to determine if patients who receive drugs to treat neurologic and psychiatric diseases have an altered risk for BP.
