Pemphigoid gestationis is a rare dermatosis of pregnancy that often goes unrecognized or misdiagnosed. It can lead to adverse fetal outcomes including preterm delivery, low fetal birth weight, and even neonatal pemphigoid gestationis1. As such, proper diagnosis and management is critical in reducing fetal risk.
