A case of Kaposi's varicelliform eruption complicating pemphigus foliaceus is reported. The patient was taking 200 mg of prednisone daily throughout her herpetic infection in order to control her pemphigus. It cannot be stated with certainty that prednisone influenced the course of the recurrent viral disease.
