Neonatal pemphigus vulgaris is a rare autoimmune disease that is caused by transplacental passage of pemphigus vulgaris autoantibodies. The association of maternal pemphigus vulgaris with neonatal disease pemphigus vulgaris has been only rarely reported. We describe an infant with pemphigus vulgaris born to a mother whose disease was in remission.
