We report the first case of bullous pemphigoid complicating radiation therapy for vulvar cancer. Shortly after completion of post-operative radiation therapy for a T1N1 vulvar carcinoma, the patient presented with a rash that started within, but continued to extend, well beyond the radiation field. A biopsy of the lesions confirmed the diagnosis of bullous pemphigoid, and she had prompt clinical resolution with systemic tetracycline and steroids.
