Desmoglein (Dsg) 1 and Dsg3 are recognized as the autoantigens in pemphigus foliaceus and pemphigus vulgaris. Pemphigus‐like syndromes have been reported to occur in individuals after exposure to a variety of drugs, but pemphigus caused by carbamazepine is not common. We found that anti‐Dsg1 and anti‐Dsg3 antibody titres were increased in three individuals administered carbamazepine. Antibody titres against Dsgs 1 and 3 were measured by enzyme‐linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). Of 42 serum… 
Pemphigus Vulgaris Autoantibody Profiling by Proteomic Technique
TLDR
Novel autoantibody signatures may help explain individual variations in disease severity and treatment response, and serve as sensitive and specific biomarkers for new diagnostic assays in PV patients.
A retrospective study of antihypertensives in pemphigus: a still unchartered odyssey particularly between thiols, amides and phenols
TLDR
Drug triggering should be suspected in every case of newly diagnosed or exacerbated pemphigus, as eliminating possible PV/PF triggers/sustainers may alleviate the clinical symptoms and enable the decrease of dose/range of immunosuppressants regardless of pemPHigus form.
Dapsone hypersensitivity syndrome with circulating 190‐kDa and 230‐kDa autoantibodies
TLDR
A 44‐year‐old female Korean patient with dapsone hypersensitivity syndrome (DHS) that presented as a bullous skin eruption is reported, illustrating DHS with the formation of circulating autoantibodies.
Pemphigus autoimmunity: Hypotheses and realities
TLDR
The natural course of pemphigus has improved due to a substantial progress in developing of the steroid-sparing therapies combining the immunosuppressive and direct anti-acantholytic effects, and further elucidation of the molecular mechanisms mediating immune dysregulation and apoptolysis should improve understanding of disease pathogenesis and facilitate development of steroid-free treatment of patients.
Are desmoglein autoantibodies essential for the immunopathogenesis of pemphigus vulgaris, or just ‘witnesses of disease'?
TLDR
An attempt at a rational public debate of the entire currently available evidence, as rationally and as undogmatically as possible, by provocatively asking a carefully selected congregation of experts to discuss how essential anti‐desmoglein autoantibodies really are in the immunopathogenesis of PV.
Drug rash with eosinophilia and systemic symptoms induced by valproate and carbamazepine: formation of circulating auto-antibody against 190-kDa antigen.
TLDR
A case of a Korean woman who had previously tolerated valproate, but developed DRESS due toValproate after carbamazepine intake is reported, which indicates cross-sensitivity.
Monopathogenic vs multipathogenic explanations of pemphigus pathophysiology
TLDR
This viewpoint highlights major, partly controversial concepts about the pathogenesis of pemphigus, and explains intra‐epidermal blistering through the “desmoglein (Dsg) compensation” hypothesis.
Urban legends: pemphigus vulgaris.
TLDR
RTX is a very promising treatment option in patients with widespread recalcitrant or life-threatening PV, and its cost is an issue, its long-term side effects are still unknown, and randomized controlled trials are needed to establish the optimal dosing regimen.
An unusual variant of lichen nitidus
TLDR
A 48-year-old Iranian farm worker man with a 6-day history of malaise, chills and high fever was referred to the emergency department of St Zahra Hospital in Isfahan with an ulcerated plaque, believed to be the first case report of cutaneous anthrax resulting in a facial nerve palsy.

Usefulness of enzyme‐linked immunosorbent assay using recombinant desmogleins 1 and 3 for serodiagnosis of pemphigus
TLDR
Dsg1 and Dsg3 ELISAs provide a simple, sensitive and highly specific assay for the diagnosis of patients with PV and PF and that these ELIS as may be a valuable tool to monitor the disease activity.
Desmoglein 3-ELISA: a pemphigus vulgaris-specific diagnostic tool.
TLDR
The Dsg3-ELISA is a sensitive, objective, and PV-specific test that should be considered as an adjunct test for the management of patients with PV.
The Prevalence of Antibodies against Desmoglein 1 in Endemic Pemphigus Foliaceus in Brazil
TLDR
An enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay was used to detect antibodies against desmoglein 1 in serum samples from 60 patients with endemic pemphigus foliaceus (fogo selvagem) who lived in Limao Verde or elsewhere in Brazil, 372 normal subjects (without pem PHIaceus), and 126 normal subjects from the United States and Japan.
Antigen-specific immunoadsorption of pathogenic autoantibodies in pemphigus foliaceus.
TLDR
Observations indicate that the extracellular domain of Dsg1 expressed by baculovirus is capable of specifically immunoadsorbing pathogenic autoantibodies from PF patients' sera and provide direct evidence that the anti-Dsg1 autoantsibodies in PF sera are indeed pathogenic.
Drug-induced pemphigus: autoantibodies directed against the pemphigus antigen complexes are present in penicillamine and captopril-induced pemphigus.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that autoantibodies from drug-induced pemphigus patients have the same antigenic specificity, on a molecular level, as do autoantIBodies from other pemPHIGus patients.
Pemphigus vulgaris antigen (desmoglein 3) is localized in the lower epidermis, the site of blister formation in patients.
In Patients with pemphigus vulgaris, autoantibodies against the desmosomal glycoprotein desmoglein 3 (Dsg3) cause blisters due to loss of keratinocyte cell-cell adhesion in the basal and immediate
Demonstration of antibody to 230 kDa bullous pemphigoid antigen in lichen planus-like keratosis.
TLDR
Observations suggest that the presence of an antibody to BPAG1 could be caused by the damage of basal cells following lichen planus-like keratosis, which is associated with anti-230 kDa bullous pemphigoid antigen (BPAG 1) autoantibody.
Drug-induced versus drug-triggered pemphigus.
TLDR
It seems that penicillamine (and SH drugs) actually induces pemphigus in most of the cases, whereas other drugs only trigger the disease in patients with a previous predisposition.
Toxin in bullous impetigo and staphylococcal scalded-skin syndrome targets desmoglein 1
TLDR
It is shown here that exfoliative toxin A cleaved mouse and human Dsg1, but not closely related cadherins such as Dsg3.
Pemphigus-like eruption from captopril.
TLDR
A third patient is observed with clinical and histologic features of pemphigus that can be attributed to the administration of captopril, a potent angiotensinconverting enzyme inhibitor used to treat patients with hypertension.
