Pemphigus vulgaris is an autoimmune vesiculobullous disease of the skin and the mucous membrane. It most commonly involves the population of the fifth and sixth decades, and is extremely rare in children. We report a case of this disease in a 13-year-old boy, who was documented to have pemphigus vulgaris with historical, histopathological, and immunological criterion. He received corticosteroid and immunosuppressive drugs and a good response was achieved. We concluded that pemphigus vulgaris is a rare disease in children, but it should be kept in mind as a differential diagnosis of oral ulceration along with skin manifestation in children.
