Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A 69-year-old male and a 79-year-old male presented to our hospital with intractable stomatitis. Antibodies against desmoglein 1 and 3 were detected in case 1 and only desmoglein 3 in case 2. Histopathology of both cases showed an intraepidermal vesicle. Therefore, pemphigus vulgaris was diagnosed. The frequent initial symptom of this disease is intraoral symptoms, so otolaryngologists have to participate in treatment of this disease.
