Abstract

We describe four patients with generalized scaly and pustular skin lesions showing extensive neutrophilic infiltration in the subcorneal region of the epidermis. Immunofluorescence, immunoblot and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay analyses detected IgG antibodies reacting exclusively with desmoglein 1, the pemphigus foliaceus antigen. This study indicates that pemphigus foliaceus may show prominent neutrophilic pustular skin lesions.
