An 8 year old boy had recurrent episodes of erythematous papulo - vesicular eruptions on the trunk and extremities persisting for the last 4 years. Repeated biopsies revealed spongiotic acantholysis and pemphigus vulgaris in two separate biopsies. Direct immunofluorescence for fixed antibodies and indirect immunofluorescence for circulating antibodies were negative for IgG, IgA, IgM and C3. This condition is described in patients past 40 years of age. Ours is perhaps the . first child patient with this condition.
