Pemphigus vulgaris and koebner phenomenon

Hulya Nazik; Perihan Ozturk; Mehmet Kamil Mulayim; Esra Aslan Koyuncu.

Pemphigus vulgaris is a rare disease characterized by loose bullae and erosions in the skin and mucous membranes. Koebner phenomenon is defined as the occurrence of new lesions that are characteristic of the disease at the site of trauma in normal-looking skin in other aspects. We report a 53-year-old woman who was followed for pemphigus. The patient’s first complaints started 10 years ago, after tonsillectomy. The patient was operated 2 months ago for the application of spacer to infected hip prosthesis. One month after the operation, especially around the incision scar and in the mounth, common lesions emerged. Because the lesions around the incision scar appeared one month after the operation, it was interpreted as the Koebner phenomenon in this patient. In conclusion, it was aimed to draw attention to the fact that trauma may be a disease initiator factor or disease-triggering factor in remission, in patients with pemphigus vulgaris.

Key words: Pemphigus vulgaris;Koebner phenomenon;trauma
