Abstract

Several cases of psoriasis associated with bullous diseases have been reported in the literature. Bullous pemphigoid is the most frequent association observed, while pemphigus-related disorders are less frequently described. The authors report a case of a patient with long-standing psoriasis who developed pemphigus foliaceous and discuss the possible relationship between the diseases.
