AbstractA woman with pemphigoid had massive eosinophilia (51% eosinophils in differential count and total eosinophil count 8850/106/L). She responded to oral predinisolone. After 2 months of starting the treatment the differential count showed 15% eosinophils and total eosinophil count fell to 950/106/L. This case supports the hypothesis that imflammatory cells like eosinophils have an important role in the pathogenesis of pemphigoid.
