Etiopathogenesis and recent diagnostic modalities of pemphigus: A review
AUTHOR(S): Jyoti Zingade, Pavan Gujjar and Arun Kumar
ABSTRACT:Pemphigus is a group of potentially fatal dermatoses with both cutaneous and oral manifestations. Characterized by the appearance of vesicle or bullae, their manifestations in the oral cavity often precede those on the skin by many months or may remain as the only symptoms of the disease. Rupture of these lesions leads to erosions or ulcerations on the surface, hence making the diagnosis even more difficult. Hence, knowledge of the clinical presentation of these disorders with accurate diagnosis and the proper evaluation of the disease activity using recent diagnostic modalities are necessary for providing appropriate treatment and prognosis. The present article enlightens the recent diagnostic modalities that can be used for the diagnostic purpose of pemphigus.
