[Herpetiforme pemphigus].


The case is presented of a woman, who for seven years had vesicobullous outbreaks, typical of Dermatitis herpetiformis, with an extraordinary itching. The first biopsy had a doub acantholysis but the following one showed: "eccematoid-like spongiosis with eosinophilia" and "subepidermal bulla with eosinophilia, erythema multiformislike". The evolution of the case was to pemphigus foliaceus, and by the action of long-standing corthicotherapy ended in a typical Senear-Usher with present good health. These anomalous cases, first described clinically by Brocq, and histologically by Unna et Leredde, are best known now as "Pemphigus herpetiformis" (Jablonska et al.).
