Pemphigus is a group of autoimmune blistering diseases characterized by blisters and erosive lesions on the skin and mucous membranes due to loss of cell and cell adhesion of keratinocytes. In 2010, new Japanese guidelines for the management of pemphigus were published for dermatologists. Systemic corticosteroids are the gold standard and the first choice of treatment of pemphigus.
