Abstract

We present the cases of two female patients with pemphigus foliaceus and pemphigus erythematosus, respectively, who did not respond to long-term azathioprine and prednisone treatment in high dosages. In both patients the skin condition improved nearly completely after therapy with cyclosporine A (3.5-6.5 mg/kg per day) in combination with prednisone (7.5-10 mg every 2 days). We did not observe any side-effects during 1 year of this therapy.
