“…Out of about 30 cases found in the literature none had a bad outcome and clinical manifestations were controlled with relatively small doses of steroids [3,4,7,8,10,13] and even by DDS only [5,11,14], Also in our patient, who differs from the other cases of the literature for her young age (most cases being older than 50 years), the disease appears to be easily controlled with small doses of steroids and DDS.…”

Clinically and histologically, most of such cases reported in the past appear to be closely related to the superficial type of pemphigus [2,7,9,23,29], and this makes a remarkable contrast to the fact that among various types of pemphigus, pemphigus vulgaris is much more common than the superficial types of pemphigus.…”
