The erosive gingival lesions associated with vesiculobullous diseases can be an important early clinical manifestation of serious diseases such as pemphigus vulgaris (PV). PV is a vesiculobullous disease of the skin and mucosa which tends to be chronic and which normally affects people of 40-60 years of age. Its incidence varies from 0.5 to 3.2 cases per 100,000 per year. Mucosal lesions are located mainly in the oral and pharyngeal mucosa, although conjunctiva, larynx, nasal mucosa, vulva, vagina, cervix, and ano-rectal mucosa may also be involved. It is a serious mucocutaneous disease of an autoimmune nature, whose appearance during pregnancy is extremely rare.
