    Optical coherence tomography imaging of oral mucosa bullous diseases: a preliminary study

    OBJECTIVES: Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive technique based on optical imaging with a micrometre resolution. The purpose of this study is to investigate the potential role of OCT in evaluating oral mucosa bullous diseases. METHODS: two patients with bullous pemphigoid (BP) and one patient with pemphigus vulgaris (PV) were examined and images of their oral lesions were performed using OCT. RESULTS: In OCT images, the BP blister has a clearly different morphology from the PV one compared to the blistering level. CONCLUSION: This exploratory study suggests that the OCT is able to distinguish epithelial and subepithelial layer in ...
