Neonatal pemphigus vulgaris in a child born to a woman in remission.


Journal Article (Review)

We describe the tenth reported case of neonatal pemphigus that mimicked Bart's syndrome and review previously published cases. Unlike previous cases, the child was born with significant blistering to a mother who was in complete remission throughout the pregnancy. High antepartum maternal titers of anti-intercellular space antibodies, increased maternal disease activity, and maternal disease that requires high doses of corticosteroids or use of combined therapy correlate with poor fetal outcome, including intrauterine death.
