PMID:  348118     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A case of childhood pemphigus is reported. The natural history of this rare entity and past methods of treatment are reviewed. We also report on what is to our knowledge the first known use of gold in the treatment of childhood pemphigus. This modality appears to have been of benefit in our patient to date.
