Carcinoma of the pancreas has been associated with both cicatricial and bullous pemphigoid. We report a case of a 53-year-old man with cicatricial pemphigoid who died within months of the diagnosis from metastatic pancreatic-carcinoma. All three reported cases were complicated by venous thrombosis, a well recognized but uncommon feature of pancreatic cancer.
