Abstract

A retrospective case control study included data regarding 65 Jewish bullous pemphigoid (BP) patients diagnosed in a tertiary medical center and a control group consisting of 182 matched Jewish patients. The study indicates that Jewish patients with BP suffer from a higher prevalence of neurological diseases compared to patients with no BP, similarly to previous reports showing high prevalence of neurological diseases among BP patients from different ethnic groups.
