Abstract

Drug-induced pemphigus is a heterogenous group of disorders in which a drug induces acantholysis. The majority of patients have immune features of pemphigus and have a course similar to idiopathic pemphigus. Few patients do not have a detectable autoimmune process, and their eruption usually resolves with discontinuation of the associated drug. The mechanism of induction of the autoimmune process and acantholysis is not clear.
