Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The evolution of pemphigus chronicus has been studied in 3 pregnant women. In the first patient, pemphigus vulgaris appeared 2 years prior to pregnancy. In the other 2 patients the disease began during pregnancy. Both women were treated with corticosteroids during their pregnancy which was normal as was delivery. A complete remission was seen in the first case 7 years following cortocosteroid therapy, and 8 months after therapy in the second case. Prolonged corticosteroid administration had no adverse effects on the fetus. The occurrence of pemphigus chronicus in the Republic of Macedonia during the past 15 years was only 0.14% of all patients referred to the Department of Dermatology. Female patients with this disease slightly outnumbered males. All forms of pemphigus seen in this period were diagnosed both clinically and histologically. The total number of cases was 53, of which pemphigus vulgaris was 74.4%, pemphigus vegetans 7%, pemphigus foliaceus 9.3% and pemphigus seborrhoicus 9.3%. We present our cases of pemphigus in pregnant women with regard to the fact that only few such cases have been published.
