Abstract

Pemphigus vulgaris (PV) is an uncommon immune mediated bullous dermatosis, which, during its active phase, has been associated with infertility. PV is exceedingly rare during pregnancy. Only 26 cases with immunopathological confirmation have been reported. The disease may be associated with adverse neonatal outcome, including prematurity and foetal death. Transient skin lesions may occasionally appear in the neonate. We present a case of a patient who was diagnosed to have pemphigus since 3 years receiving corticosteroids and delivered a healthy female baby at 38 weeks of gestation.
