Blistering Disease Clinic


Director:  M. Peter Marinkovich MD

Blistering skin diseases can range from relatively mild to extremely painful and debilitating.  Both genetic (inherited/Epidermolysis Bullosa) as well as acquired (autoimmune/Pemphigus/Pemphigoid) forms of blistering can occur. Precise diagnosis of these diseases is extremely important and therapy of blistering diseases can be challenging, requiring a familiarity with medicines which are only infrequently used by many dermatologists.  As Director of Stanford’s Blistering Disease Clinic for over 15 years, Dr. M. Peter Marinkovich has extensive experience with both the diagnosis and therapy of the full array of blistering diseases having been recognized by his peers as an international blistering disease expert.  Together, Dr. Marinkovich and his expert staff strive to provide the highest level of care and advice for both routine and challenging blistering disease patients
