Summaries for Pemphigus Foliaceus

NIH Rare Diseases : 52 The following summary is from Orphanet , a European reference portal for information on rare diseases and orphan drugs. Orpha Number: 79481 Definition A rare superficial pemphigus disease characterized by multiple, pruritic, scaly, crusted cutaneous erosions, with flaky circumscribed patches, localized mostly on the face, scalp, trunk and extremities, often presenting an erythematous base. Mucosal involvement is rarely observed. Visit the Orphanet disease page for more resources.

MalaCards based summary : Pemphigus Foliaceus, also known as pf, is related to pemphigus and pemphigus vegetans. An important gene associated with Pemphigus Foliaceus is DSG1 (Desmoglein 1), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Developmental Biology and Keratinization. The drug Tyrosine has been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include skin, t cells and b cells, and related phenotypes are abnormal blistering of the skin and erythema
