Abstract

An instance of pemphigus vulgaris in a 12-year-old boy is presented. Prompt recognition of the disorder is stressed since the institution of corticosteroid therapy favorably influences the course of this otherwise almost invariably fatal disease. The differential diagnosis of pemphigus vulgaris and other bullous diseases of childhood is outlined, and attention is directed to the importance of a skin biopsy for the purpose of confirming the diagnosis of pemphigus vulgaris.
