Elderly patients are more susceptible to the development of autoimmune blistering disorders such as bullous pemphigoid, mucous membrane pemphigoid, epidermolysis bullosa acquisita, and paraneoplastic pemphigus. This article focuses on the clinical aspects of the aforementioned autoimmune blistering diseases and highlights the important factors involved in treating elderly patients. It is essential for clinicians to offer individualized treatment plans for these patients to optimize outcomes, as elderly patients often have multiple co-morbidities, polypharmacy, and suboptimal socioeconomic status that can adversely influence adequate compliance.
