Immunofluorescence (IF) is a molecular method for detection of antigen or antibody in a tissue section/serum sample. It is increasingly being used as an ancillary investigation that can add to the certainty of diagnosis, sometimes modify it and occasionally reveal a differential diagnosis. IF has also proved to be useful in assessing therapeutic response and predicting relapse. This review article discusses about the various techniques of IF and its diagnostic implication in mucocutaneous diseases.
