Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Pemphigus foliaceus (PF) is a rare autoimmune blistering disease presenting in endemic and sporadic forms. The typical presentation is recurrent shallow erosions in a seborrheic distribution. We present a case of a 58-year-old woman with PF who was successfully treated with a combination of oral corticosteroids and dapsone. We also provide a concise review of the literature and discuss the etiology, clinical features, diagnosis, and management of PF.
