Two cases of pemphigus foliaceus in the same family are reported. Unlike previous reports of the familial incidence of pemphigus in the English literature, each case is documented by clinical, histologic, and immunofluorescent antibody studies. A brief discussion of some of the diagnostic features of pemphigus foliaceus is included.
