Paraneoplastic pemphigus without antidesmoglein 3 or antidesmoglein 1 autoantibodies.

Abstract

Paraneoplastic pemphigus (PNP) is an autoimmune mucocutaneous blistering disease characterized by IgG autoantibodies that bind to various epithelia and immunoprecipitate a complex of 250, 230, 210, 190 and 170 kDa proteins.
