Abstract

Pemphigus(?) Presented by Dr. Behn.

J. H., a boy, aged 3 years and 6 months, had a vesicular and bullous eruption, especially on the trunk, which had first appeared ten months before presentation. New lesions had appeared from time to time. There had been no visible lesions of the mucosa, nor was there any pruritus. There was little pigmentation.

DISCUSSION  Dr. Biddle: This appears to be a case of pemphigus.Dr. Wieder: Might this not be in a group between erythema multiforme bullosum and pemphigus? A focus of infection may be found in this case.Dr. Shaffer: This case seems to shade into the erythema multiforme group.Dr. Behn: There is a nasal focus of infection.Dr. Jamieson: This is not dermatitis herpetiformis. Pruritus is not present. The patient acts like a sick child. It is apparently not a case of erythema multiforme, but appears to be pemphigus.Lingua Nigra
