ARUP Immunobullous Disease Testing Comparison

Last Literature Review: June 2022 Last Update:

Immunobullous diseases are caused by or associated with specific autoantibodies that bind to epithelium in skin and mucous membranes. These disorders do not always show blistering and may present with common symptoms or signs, including itching, eczema, urticaria, or oral mucosal irritation. They may be better known as epithelial antibody-associated diseases. ARUP Laboratories offers a comprehensive selection of immunodermatology test panels to detect the autoantibodies associated with these diseases and, thus, aid in the diagnosis and monitoring of disease activity.

For more information about the immunodermatology panels offered by ARUP, refer to the Panel Tests table.
