Checkpoint inhibitors have been revolutionary in the treatment of metastatic melanoma, non-small-cell lung cancer, and renal cell carcinoma. By restricting negative feedback of T-cells, checkpoint inhibitors allow the immune system to identify and destroy malignant cells. This enhanced immune response is efficacious in the treatment of the aforementioned malignancies; however, it may lead to immune-related adverse events. Bullous pemphigoid (BP) is a well-documented cutaneous adverse reaction of checkpoint inhibitors, with a majority of cases reporting an eosinophil-predominant or mixed inflammatory infiltrate. We report two cases of neutrophil-predominant BP presenting in patients on checkpoint inhibitors.
- bullous pemphigoid
- immune checkpoint inhibitors
- immune-related adverse events
