Pemphigus Vulgaris is a serious skin disease. Relatively it is a rare disease, which is characterized by the formation of blisters and erosions on the skin and mucous membranes. The blisters are often called bulla or bullae, which are filled with a thin watery fluid, which eventually burst, slough off and lead to sore spots. It can affect the mouth, genitals and any part of the skin. It is most commonly observed in middle-aged or older people. It is a chronic and recurring disease. It is not a contagious disease and does not spread by touch or air.
Pemphigus is an auto-immune disease, though the exact cause remains ill-understood. In Pemphigus, the body’s immune system fails to recognize the body’s own protein called desmoglein protein and reacts in the form of severe inflammation, blister formation, pain and soreness.
Autoimmunity is a process in which the body produces antibodies against normal cells and proteins of the body. In the case of Pemphigus Vulgaris, the body’s immune system produces antibodies against specific proteins called desmogleins in the skin and mucous membranes. These proteins bind skin cells together. Antibodies, which are formed against these proteins, break the bonds between the skin cells. This pathology leads to the formation of blisters.
