Based on the constellation of findings, we speculate that the intercellular staining observed in this bullous pemphigoid case is not real IgG4 immunoreactivity, but resulted from nonspecifically stained exudate permeating into the spongiotic cellular junction, mimicking intercellular junctional immunostain.
Normally these ridges occur at the membrane periphery parallel to adjacent cells cellular junctions, while close to the center they diverge and form a structure similar to a labyrinth, specifically shaped in several species (Fishelson).
