Abstract

Pemphigus erythematosus (PE) is an autoimmune blistering disease combining features of pemphigus foliaceus (PF) and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). We report a case of PE associated with anti-double-stranded DNA (anti-dsDNA), anti-Smith (anti-Sm), anti-Ro (anti-SSA), and antiribonucleoprotein (anti-RNP) antibodies. This case required extensive immunosuppressive therapy. We treated our patient with a combination of systemic steroids, intramuscular gold injections, azathioprine, and hydroxychloroquine. The patient's response was complete remission - evaluated clinically, serologically, and immunohistochemically.
