Seven children had pemphigus: six had pemphigus vulgaris and one pemphigus foliaceus. Four who had pemphigus vulgaris were administered dexamethasone pulses. Follow-up from six months to one year was uneventful; the disease was under control and there were no complications due to therapy. Our observations suggest that the clinical features, course, and principles of therapy for pemphigus in children are essentially the same as those in adults.
