A case study: combination of pemphigus foliaceus and psoriasis. Problems of diagnostics


The authors describe a clinical study of a patient who was suffering from psoriasis for many years and was diagnosed with pemphigus foliaceus after an additional examination. When the patient was hospitalized, the pathological process in the skin was almost close to erythroderma. Systemic and external therapy failed to produce the desired effect. The diagnosis of pemphigus was confirmed by the results of cytological and histological examinations. The authors describe problems with diagnostics and treatment of the diseases.
