Comments: These comments will be very short: this is clearly one of the best reviews ever written on this topic: this paper provides detailed information on the pathogenesis, clinical signs, histopathology, immunopathology and treatment of human pemphigus vulgaris and foliaceus; a must read for board examination preparation.
