A patient is described who initially presented with an acrovesicular eczema which subsequently developed into erythema multiforme with histopathological features of bullous pemphigoid. Although the various laboratory studies pointed to the diagnosis of paraneoplastic pemphigus (PNP), the underlying neoplasm was not detected until 6 months later, when the biopsies of an oral lesion showed the presence of an underlying non- Hodgkin lymphoma.
