Pregnancy-associated pemphigus – case report

E Pop-Began, R Vlădăreanu, S Vlădăreanu, C Pop-Began


Rezumat: From an immunological point of view, pregnancy is a physiological condition treated by the body as a semiallograft, the product of conception holding 50% of genetical information from the partner. Hormonal and biochemical changes specific to pregnancy lead to decreased immunity in order to tolerate fetal development. This immune tolerance causes an improvement in most autoimmune diseases during pregnancy. However, there are some exceptions to this rule, therefore in this article we present the case of a pregnant woman who developed an exacerbation of the clinical manifestations of pemphigus during pregnancy. The informed consent was obtained from the patient for the publication of this case. We chose to present this case due to the rare incidence of pregnancy-associated pemphigus.
Cuvinte cheie: pemphigus, pregnancy, autoimmune diseases, case report.
