Direct immunoflurescence was carried out in 20 patients with pemphigus vulgaris and repeated at intervals of 3 months in each patient on 3 occasions or earlier in patients who had a relapse. No correlation was observed between the disease activity and positive DIF. Complement deposition showed an increase or reappeared in patients who had a relapse. It is thus a better indication of an imminent relapse.
