*Corresponding author for this work


For many years, The Journal of Investigative Dermatology (JID) has been a leader in our understanding of many aspects of the major autoimmune blistering skin diseases, pemphigus and bullous pemphigoid. The purpose of this review is to highlight and summarize those advances by discussing the respective articles, published in the JID from 2015 to 2019. Seminal articles from elsewhere in the literature that set the stage for those advances, or that are “classics” in the area, are also included to provide context and a more complete picture.
