We report a case of pemphigus vulgaris in a 46-year-old woman who presented with scaly and crusted erosions over erythematous base associated with itching and burning mainly over the chest, submammary folds, face, abdomen and the back. Histopathology was consistent with pemphigus foliaceus. The patient responded to oral prednisolone (60 mg/day). The above findings suggest that pemphigus vulgaris showed a transition to the pemphigus foliaceus variant.
