Abstract

Hailey-Hailey disease (HHD), or familial benign pemphigus, is a rare autosomal dominant acantholytic dermatosis characterized by blistering, and erythematous, erosive and macerated plaques located primarily in intertriginous areas. Secondary bacterial and viral infections are common. There is no "gold standard" treatment, although many therapeutic modalities have been proposed.
