Caption: Pemphigus vulgaris lesions on the thorax and abdomen of a 45-year-old woman. Pemphigus is a general term for a group of blistering autoimmune diseases, where the immune system attacks the skin and mucous membranes. Pemphigus vulgaris is the most common form of pemphigus. This case is an eosinophilic form of pemphigus, involving a type of white blood cell called an eosinophil. Treatment for pemphigus conditions usually involves the use of high doses of steroids, with antibiotics to prevent infection of the blisters.
