Abstract

Pemphigus vulgaris, a bullous dermatosis, rarely occurs during pregnancy. Previous reviews have suggested that pemphigus has no significant effect on pregnancy. A case report of pemphigus occurring during pregnancy and resulting in an intrauterine death is presented. A reevaluation of the literature indicates that maternal pemphigus is associated with a significant risk of fetal mortality.
