Pemphigus vulgaris: case report in a Nigerian Negro.


A middle-aged Nigerian male had generalised pruritus, widespread flaccid vesicles and bullae, with ulcerations of the skin that heal without scarring, weight loss, positive nikolsy sign, anaemia, and marked eosinophilia. Pemphigus vulgaris is a rare disease among those of Negroid extraction, we therefore, report this case involving a Nigerian.
