The mucosal pemphigoid in Oto-Rhino-Laryngology (In memory of Arthur Thost, born on 9th June 1854)


To the Oto-Rhino-Laryngologist Arthur Thost (born 9th June 1854), in whose honour this lecture is being held, is due the merit of having been the first (commencing 1895) to describe the disease in detail, which for decades has been referred to as “Pemphigus of the Conjunctiva” or “Essential Shrinking of the Conjunctiva” and since Lever (1953) is termed “Mucosal Pemphigoid”.
