A blood sample should be sent for indirect immunofluorescence which may reveal the presence of circulating auto-antibody.

MANAGEMENT Because the condition is a life-threatening disease, it is important to confirm clinical suspicion of its existence.

Localized white patches suggest a traumatic or neoplastic etiology, while widespread involvement suggests a systemic, immunologic, or hereditary condition.
