Vesicles, bullae (blisters) and pustules

Vesicles, bullae and pustules are superficial lesions with a liquid content.   The two first ones can only secondarily become pustulent by overlaying infections.  The pustule initially contains pus and is very rare in th oral mucosa.  These lesions are rarely found intact when occuring inside the mouth, since masticatory trauma ruptures them rather easily.
Vesicles are primarily formed by spongiosis of an eczema or by a ballooning and reticular degeneration during viral infections.
The mechanism by which a blister is formed is fundamental to confirm the diagnosis of the underlying disease. Blisters may be intraepithelial, by acantholysis of the spiny cells, as occurs in the different types of pemphigus, or subepidermal separating the connective tissue from the epithelium as occurs in the pemphigoidal lesions: Duhring’s disease, erythema multiforme, and bullous pemphigoid.
