Summaries for Pemphigus Vulgaris, Familial

NIH Rare Diseases : 53 Pemphigus vulgaris is an autoimmune disorder that involves blistering and erosion of the skin and mucous membranes. It occurs almost exclusively in middle-aged or older people. The primary lesion of pemphigus vulgaris is a soft blister filled with clear fluid that appears on healthy or irritated skin. Many cases begin with blisters in the mouth, followed by skin blisters that may come and go. The blisters inside the mouth can make it hard for the person to eat. The rupture of blisters on the skin may be painful and limit the person's daily activities. Complications due to infections can be serious and the damaging nature of the blisters can cause loss of body fluids and protein. The exact cause of pemphigus vulgaris is unknown, but the blisters in pemphigus vulgaris are associated with the binding of antibodies to the skin cells. Treatment is aimed at reducing symptoms and preventing complications, and may include the use of corticosteroids, immunosuppressive drugs, and more recently immunotherapy. Pemphigus vulgaris may require long term treatment to keep it in remission.

MalaCards based summary : Pemphigus Vulgaris, Familial, also known as pemphigus vulgaris, is related to ritter's disease and epidermolysis bullosa, lethal acantholytic. An important gene associated with Pemphigus Vulgaris, Familial is DSG1 (Desmoglein 1), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Developmental Biology and Cell junction organization. The drugs Triamcinolone and Dexamethasone have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include skin, t cells and testes, and related phenotypes are feeding difficulties in infancy and abnormal blistering of the skin

Disease Ontology : 12 A pemphigus characterized by autosomal dominant blisters and erosions on the skin and mucous membranes erosions cause by autoantibodies to intercellular cement substance.

OMIM : 57 Pemphigus vulgaris (PV) is a rare, blistering autoimmune disease that affects the skin and mucous membranes. Patients have circulating antibody to an intercellular cement substance, and deposition in vivo of this antibody is a hallmark of the disease. The antibody appears to be pathogenetic, since newborn infants of mothers with pemphigus may have blisters, and newborn mice injected with the antibody from patients have clinical pemphigus. The disease is reported to have a particularly high incidence among Jews (summary by Ahmed et al., 1990). (169610)
