Pemphigus is an autoimmune blistering disease and includes two classical forms. These forms are Pemphigus vulgaris (PV) and Pemphigus foliaceus (PF). These two subtypes of the disease are related with different auto-antibodies and show different clinical features. Rare cases of simultaneous presence of PV and PF have been presented in the literature. Here, we report the case of a 62-year-old woman who developed PV and PF lesions at the same time.
