—The question originally proposed to me concerned a patient with pemphigoid and the answer was written accordingly. Somehow, in the copy editing process, pemphigoid was changed to pemphigus in the title, question, and answer, and we did not catch the change in the page proof.I agree with Schwab et al on their treatment for pemphigus. Insofar as the controversial nature of my proposed, albeit mislabeled, treatment for a patient with pemphigoid, there is, to my knowledge, no treatment that can be identified as definitive for these vexing cases, but I have found my approach to work well in my 11 years of experience with this problem.
