Pemphigus Herpetiformis

definition

Rare variant of pemphigus vulgaris characterized by intensely pruritic symmetrically grouped papulovesicular lesions similar to those in dermatitis herpetiformis. The histopathologic characteristics differ from those in dermatitis herpetiformis, though, and the immunofluorescent findings are similar to those in pemphigus vulgaris.
